MORAL STORIES

Be Wary of Advice

There was a withered tree standing in the corner of a man's backyard.

"It's unlucky to keep a withered tree," said his neighbour.
"Cut it down before something unpleasant happens."

The man cut down the tree.
His neighbour came with his two sons and asked for and dragged away the branches for fuel.

"All he wanted was the wood," thought the owner of the tree, ruefully.
"Cutting down the tree may not improve my luck, but it has certainly benefited him."
