Sound advice.

A Chinese Tale :Sound advice.


A young man was working in the family garden when his older brother called out to him to come in and have lunch.

“Wait a minute!” shouted the younger brother. “I’ll hide the spade and come!”

When he came in, his brother scolded him for his indiscretion.

“Did you have to shout like that for the whole world to hear?” He said, testily. “What is meant only for my ears should be heard by me alone!”

After lunch the young man went back to the garden to continue his work, but returned almost immediately.

“I have something to tell you,” he whispered to his brother, “Somebody has stolen the spade!”
