​Lesson 47

The Rooster and The Gem








【The Fable of the Rooster and the Gem】


A rooster was looking for food in the field and suddenly found a precious jade.  It is not clear who accidentally dropped it there.  The rooster said,  "Wow, you are so beautiful, and your master will be overjoyed if he finds you. But to me, you are useless. It is better to have a grain of wheat than to have all the jewels in the world. "


[The moral of the story of the rooster and the gem]


What is useful to us is what we really need.
