One very cold night, a rich man met a homeless old man outside. The millionaire stopped and asked him: “I see you don’t have a winter coat, you’re not cold”?
The old man looked at him for a long time and then replied: “I don’t, but I’m used to it.” The rich man, astonished by the answer he received, said to him: “Wait for me! I’m going to my house now and I’m going to bring you a thick coat to keep you warm at night. ”
The old man lit up his face and happily told him that he would not leave and would wait for him there. The rich man entered the house but forgot the promise made to the old man. In the morning, when he awoke, he remembered the poor man and went out quickly to look for him. Unfortunately, the old man had died because of the cold.
The millionaire found a note left by the old man. “When I didn’t have thick clothes, I had the strength to fight the cold weather, because I was used to it, but when you promised to help me, I attached myself to your promise and that took my strength. to resist. ”
MORAL: Promise nothing, never, not even love, if you can’t keep your promise. For you, it may not mean anything, but it could mean everything to someone else!
