The website publishes one of our most beloved parables, the author of the Marina Sirotkina. 10500bdc7c.jpg

Forwallpaper.comas in a certain village came and stayed there to live the old wise man. He loved children and spent much time with them. He loved to make them gifts, but gave only brittle things. No matter how trying the children to be careful, their new toys often broke. The children were upset and cried bitterly. Passed some time, the wise man again gave them toys, but even more fragile.

Once the parents broke down and came to him:

— You are wise and wish our children well. But why make them such gifts? They try as they can, but toys still broken, and children cry. But the toy is so beautiful that not to play with them is impossible.

— It will take quite a few years, — the Wiseman smiled, — and someone will give his heart to them. Maybe it will teach them to deal with such a priceless gift a little neater?
