PAULO COEHLO

[ad#hlinks]

“Over the course of one year, give a coin to each person who offends or upsets you,” instructed the abbout to a young man. For the next 12 months, the boy gave a coin to each person who offends or upset him, as instructed. At the end of the year, he returned to the abbot to find out the next step. ” Go into town and buy food for me,” the abbot responded. Once the boy left, the abbot changed his cloths, and disgusied himself as a begger and went to the gate. When the boy approached, he began to insult him. “Good!” said the boy, “for a whole year I had to pay people who upset or offended me, and now I can be attacked for free, without spending anything!” Hearing this, the abbot removed his disguise.

“He who does not take insults seriously, is on the path to wisdom.”
