The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army.
Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. Obsessed: crossing the river Two traveling monks reached a river where they met a young woman. Wary of the current, she asked if they could carry her across. One of the monks hesitated, but the other quickly picked her up onto his shoulders, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other bank. As the monks continued on their way, the one was brooding and preoccupied. Unable to hold his silence, he spoke out. Brother, our spiritual training teaches us to avoid any contact with women, but you picked that one up on your shoulders and carried her!

Ritual Cat When the spiritual teacher and his disciples began their evening meditation, a cat who lived in the monastery made such noise that it distracted them. One day the teacher ordered that the cat be tied up during the evening practice. Years later, when the teacher died, the cat continued to be tied up during the meditation session.

One day the son got so frustrated by this, that he built a wooden coffin, dragged it over to the porch, and told his father to get in. After closing the lid, the son dragged the coffin to the edge of the farm where there was a high cliff. As he approached the drop, he heard a light tapping on the lid from inside the coffin. Still lying there peacefully, the father looked up at his son. I know you are going to throw me over the cliff, but before you do, may I suggest something? Throw me over the cliff, if you like,” said the father, “but save this good wooden coffin.
As we’ve already noted, tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, and while it may have originated as a holiday commemorating the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, it’s now commonly observed as a celebration of Irish culture as a whole. You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from. I believe in luck: how else can you explain the success of those you dislike? You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don’t help. But, he thought, I keep them with precision. Only I have no luck anymore. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact.
