– Why do you doom yourself to a hard work and suffering? – Asked the old man.
– I suffer for my grandchildren and the children were happy, – said the poor fellow. – My great-grandfather doomed himself to hard labor for the sake of his grandfather, his grandfather – for the sake of his father, his father – for me, and I will suffer for the sake of the happiness of my children.
– And someone in your family will be happy? – Ask the wise man?
– Not yet, but the children and grandchildren certainly will be happy! – Dreamily said the man.
Unfortunately, the illiterate man can not read, and the mole will never be able to teach an eagle! – Sighed the old wise man.
