This illustrates what my Father preached to me for many years. I now totally agree with him !
The KING called all of his wise men to a meeting and told them that he wanted them to compile “All Of The Wisdom Of The World” and bring it back to him.
Three years later they returned with two wagon loads of books and the KING asked them what all of the books were. The wise men said that the books contained “All Of The Wisdom Of The World”. The KING angrily said “I don’t want all of those books so go back and condense what you have done”and bring it back to me”.
Two years later the wise men returned and proudly said “Oh King, we have condensed “All Of The Wisdom Of The World” into one book”. The KING angrily replied by telling them that he now wanted them to condense that book into one sentence.
A year later the wise men returned and said “Oh King, Your request was very difficult but we have condensed “All Of The Wisdom Of The World” into one sentence. That sentence said:
“THERE AIN’T NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH”
