Wild horses and the farmers’ son
A farmer had only one horse, and one day the horse ran away.
The neighbors came to condole over his terrible loss.
The farmer said, “What makes you think it is so terrible?” A month later, the horse came home–this time bringing
with her two beautiful wild horses. The neighbors became
excited at the farmer’s good fortune. Such lovely strong horses!
The farmer said, “What makes you think this is good fortune?”The farmer’s son was thrown from one of the wild horses
and broke his leg. All the neighbors were very distressed.
Such bad luck! The farmer said, “What makes you think it is bad?”War came, and every able-bodied man was conscripted and sent
into battle. Only the farmer’s son, because he had a broken leg,
remained home.As told by Executive editor, Elise Hancock, in the Johns Hopkins Magazine,
November 1993, page 2, in section entitled Editor’s Note.
