Mr. Rasti bought some furniture, and to move the furniture; he hired two guys. They asked Mr. Rasti to pay them four hundred.
Mr. Rasti bargained, and finally, they agreed to finish the job for three hundred.
When the job finished, Mr. Rasti paid three hundred to one of them. That guy thanked Mr. Rasti, put one hundred in his pocket and gave two hundred to the other guy.
Mr. Rasti couldn’t ignore what he saw and said: “I thought you guys were partners, and it was one hundred fifty each?!”
That guy said: “My friend has two children and is in debt; he needs the money more than me. I have only one kid and no debt.”
Mr. Rasti took one hundred out of his pocket and said: “Sorry, it’s my fault. I shouldn’t have barggened. Here is your share. Now you both made two hundred each.”
The guy got very happy and gave his partner half fo that money too.
Mr. Rasti was so amazed at the Generosity of this young man. He had never seen anything like this. He thought to himself: “Generosity needs a big heart, not a big pocket. Everyone can become rich, but not all can be unstinting. Becoming rich is a skill, but becoming generous is attainment. Everyone can educate, but not all can gain knowledge. Becoming educated is a talent, but growing informed needs virtue. Everyone lives, but not all live beautifully. Living is a habit, but living beautifully is excellent.
