A long time ago, there is an unfortunate poor guy. His home was furthermore very poor – a little and empty home, where mice produced their nests and spiders produced their webs. People tried to avoid coming into his house – why should they stick their noses into those poor ruins? And the poor man thought that poverty is the reason of his misfortunes – his eternal destiny.
So once, the poor man met a wizard and complained to him about his poverty and miserable lifestyle. The wizard experienced sorry for the poor man and offered him an unprecedented vase. And said:
– It is a magical vase that may save you from poverty.
The poor man required the vase and wanted to sell it at first and then spend the money on alcohol, as typical, besides, why would he need such a beautiful thing? But then he started admiring the vase and couldn’t take it to the market. He introduced the vase home, put it on the table and started admiring it.
– It’s not right for such a beautiful factor to be empty, – the poor man thought. So he picked some wildflowers and put them into the vase.
It became even more beautiful.
– Not good, – the poor man though again, – that such a beautiful thing stands next to a spider web.
So the poor man started cleaning his house from spider webs, sweeping out cockroaches and mice, cleaning the dust, washing the floor and the walls, whitening the ceiling.
And it became obvious that his house wasn’t poor, but rather hot and cosy. And the poor man wasn’t a poor man anymore, but a hard working sponsor, who had no time for thoughts about misfortune.
