In ancient China there lived an old farmer on a little farm at the edge of the town. He was very poor; lived with his good for nothing son.
One day the farmer went to the mountains and returned in the evening with an extremely handsome horse. The villagers were envious of his prized possession, but congratulated him all the same. He said, it is neither good nor bad, it is as it is. Next day the King of that land saw the horse grazing; while he was returning after his morning walk, to the palace. He at once fell in love with the horse and offered to buy him from the farmer for a huge price. The villagers once again congratulated the farmer for his luck; but he refused to sell the horse because he said, that one does not sell a friend and this horse is my friend, and once again he added, it is neither good nor bad, it is as it is. The people called him a fool and went away.....
