Once there lived a king of great strengthand wealth.Yet he was not happy.He told his servants to find him thingsto make him happy,but each came back saying,"Noting in the world canmatch the wonderful things you have already."Then in that land,therelived a poor man with a patch over one eye and a crutchto help himwalk.Although he had little,he was always happy.When the king heard ofthis,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.
