Master & Student: Wealth

Master & Student have been practicing there art in the dojo. They stop to take tea and watch the sun set.

“Master, in the square I see the merchants boasting of their fattening purses.”

The old man nodded.

“Do you suppose these boastful men to be happy?”

“They look it Master.”

“Why?”

“Their robes are beautiful and silken. Their bellies are full.”

“Real wealth is to be found in your heart young one not material things. Always remember or be poor forever.”
