185 - The Man and the little Statue



A poor man had an little statue of a god, and he begged to it to give him fortune; but since his misery was not doing any more that to increase, got angry and, taking the god for a foot, he struck it against the wall. The head of the god broke, spreading golden coins. The man gathered them and exclaimed:

"From what I see, you have the ideas the other way round, in addition to being an ingrate, because when I was adoring you, you have not helped me, and now when I finish of throwing you, you answer me fulfilling me with wealth."

We gain nothing praising the ingrates or evil ones, more is obtained punishing them.
