Instant Gratification   

Tue, 19 Apr 2011

A wise man is sitting at the gate of a large city…

A traveler approached him and asked, “Sir, I’m new here. Could you tell me the kind of people that live in this city?”

After pondering, the wise men asked in return, “And what were the people like where you came from?”

The man replied, “They were unfriendly and mean-spirited.”

The wise man responded, “That’s what they’re like here, too.”

Not long thereafter another traveler approached the city and asked the wise man again the kind of people that lived within the city. “What were the people like in the city that you’ve come from?”

The traveler replied, “Friendly, good-hearted, willing to help their neighbor,” to which the wise man responded, ”And that is what they are like here, too.”
