Stone on the Road
A long time ago, there was a wise and rich king who lived in a palace near a small village. He loved all his people including the villagers living in that small village. To support the villagers, the king did many things for them, such as planting beautiful trees near every house and having a picnic for the children. He always gave presents for every child on its birthday. However, this caused the villagers to become lazy. It was unnecessary to work because they thought the king will provide them with everything they needed.
Seeing this, the king did not want them to be lazy. One day, the king got up early and ordered his soldiers to put a huge stone in the middle of the road. He told his men to put some gold money under it. Then he waited to see what would happen.
A poor man, while riding a cow, came by. He grumbled because the stone blocked his way. He walked around the stone and continued on his way. Later, a farmer came along. He complained as he saw the stone blocking his way to the mill. However, he did the same thing like the previous man.
Time went by. People who came across the stone were groaning and grumbling. But no one tried to move the stone.
Dusk came and a boy walked along the road. He had just finished his work at the mill that day and he looked so tired.
"The night will come soon. Someone may stumble over this stone and get hurt. Better to move it out of the way," said the boy. The boy dragged the heavy stone. It was very heavy, but the boy did not give up. He kept pushing and pulling until the stone was finally removed from the road.
Finding a bag under the stone, the boy was surprised. Upon the bag was written: "THE GOLD BELONGS TO THE ONE WHO MOVES THE STONE!"
The boy felt very happy and went home joyfully. The king was glad that he had finally found someone who still wanted to work hard. Then he went back to his palace.
