Hodja Mullah Nasruddin: the gold


Nasrudin: “My son, get up early in the mornings.” “Why father?” “It is a good habit. Why, once I rose at dawn and went for a walk. I found on the road a sack of gold.” “How did you know it was not lost the previous night?” “That is not the point. In any case, it had not been there the night before. I noticed that.” “Then it isn’t lucky for everyone to get up early. The man who lost the gold must have been up earlier than you.”
