The secret of happiness
Once there lived a king of great strength and wealth.Yet he was not happy.He told his servants to find him things to make him happy,but each came back saying,”Noting in the world can match the wonderful things you have already.”Then in that land,there lived a poor man with a patch over one eye and a crutch to help him walk.Although he had little,he was always happy.When the king heard of this,he asked the man to teach him his secret.
“I never push.” the man replied,”and I never rush. Most of all, I never wish for too much.”Then he smiled and was gone.
If you would make a man happy,do not add to his possessions but subtract from his desires.
