193 - The Fishermen and the Stones

Some Fishermen were out trawling their nets. 

Perceiving them to be very heavy, they danced about for joy and supposed that they had taken a large catch. 

When they had dragged the nets to the shore they found but few fish: the nets were full of sand and stones, and the men were beyond measure cast down so much at the disappointment which had befallen them, but because they had formed such very different expectations. 

One of their company, an old man, said, "Let us cease lamenting, my mates, for, as it seems to me, sorrow is always the twin sister of joy; and it was only to be looked for that we, who just now were over-rejoiced, should next have something to make us sad."


Is a routine of the life that to good times follow bad times and to bad times follow good times. We must be always prepared to these unexpected changes.
