Aesop tells of a peasant
Charitable, but not too wise
One winter's day was traveling
Around the land he tended.
He saw a serpent stretched out in the snow
Cold and frozen, paralyzed
Having little time to live.
The villager took him home
And, without considering the cost
Of such an action,
Laid him out before the fire
Warmed him and revived him.
The frozen serpent began to sense the warmth
Which revived his soul as well as his evil nature.
He lifted his head a bit and whistled;
Coiled his body and then struck
Against his benefactor, his saviour and his father.
"Ingrate!" said the peasant. " 'Tis thus you repay me?
You will die!" And with these words, in righteous rage
He took a knife and sliced the beast
Making 3 serpents with 2 cuts;
A trunk, a head, and a tail.
The evil one tried to rejoin himself
But 'twas to no avail.
During the Warring States Period , wow gold there was a man called Yue Yangzi in State Yue. One day he saw a piece of gold on the road and picked it up. He took it home and gave it to his wife. But his wife was not happy. The virtuous woman said, "I hear that a man of morality doesn't drink a thief's water and a man power leveling of probity refuses to accept alms. What do you think of the action of picking up another's lost valuable and possessing it for one's own?" Yue Yangzi, feeling rolex ashamed, sent the gold back to where he found it. the next year, Yue Yangzi felt that he should go out and visit scholars to enrich his knowledge. So he set off. A year later, he came back home suddenly. "Why have you returned?" asked his wife in surprise, "You've only spent one year studying with scholars." "I come back because I missed you very much." Without saying anything, his wife took a pair of scissors and went to the loom at which she had worked. Pointing at the half done brocade, she proclaimed : "This brocade is Runescape gold woven from the finest silk. I wove one strand after another to produce the brocade. Now if I cut it, all my previous work will be wasted. It's the same with your studies. You can acquire knowledge only through diligence. Now, you've stopped halfway. Isn't it the same as cutting the brocade on the loom?" Yue Yangzi was moved by what she said.wow power level He again left home to visit scholars. Several years later he became a learned man.
Charity is a virtue but be careful toward whom
There's no point showing it to ingrates who seal
their own doom.
