You Never Know|شما هرگز نمی دانید

“182nd story”

Once upon a time,

There lived an old man in a village.

One of the days his horse ran away, and that was very hard for him.

People of the village said: “You are a very unlucky person, and we feel so sorry for you.”

The old man replied: “You never know.”

The next day the old man’s horse came back along with a few wild horses and now his one horse became so many.

The people of the village said: “You are a very lucky man.”

The old man replied: “You never know.”

The old man’s son tried to tame the wild horses and fell off one of them, and broke his leg.

 People of the village said: “You are a very unlucky person.”

The old man only had one answer: “You never know.”

The next day the king announced that all the young men and boys have to join the army and fight for the king.

The old man’s son was excused because he had a broken leg.

People said: “You are very lucky.”

And the old man said: “You never know.”

Life is full of unlucky and lucky events; all is just the appearance of the life. But never forget that all your today’s bad lucks could be a lead to your future best of lucks.

“You Never Know.”
