Chinesse fable : The wise elderly woman
An elderly woman had a friend, a
married young woman, whose mother in law suspected she had stolen a piece of
meat and because of that , she
wanted to throw her out of the house .The desperated young woman went to
complain to her friend .
¨Where can you
go ?¨- the elderly neighbour said -¨ I´m gonna get
your mother in law called you¨ .Then,
she went to the young woman´s house with a straw.
¨My dogs are
fighting for a piece of meat¨- she said –¨ that´s why I need some light to
set a big fire and
as the mother in law heard it , she
send someone to call her daughter in law.
elderly woman wasn´t endowed with eloquence ,
and taking a straw to ask for light is not a good way to get a
reconciliation ; but when you procede properly
you get good resaults.
