Sea­side trav­el­ers

Iran Daily - - Entertainment -

Some trav­el­ers, jour­ney­ing along the seashore, climbed to the sum­mit of a tall cliff, and look­ing over the sea, saw in the dis­tance what they thought was a large ship. They waited in the hope of see­ing it en­ter the har­bor, but as the ob­ject on which they looked was driven nearer to shore by the wind, they found that it could at the most be a small boat, and not a ship.

When, how­ever, it reached the beach, they dis­cov­ered that it was only a large fag­got of sticks, and one of them said to his com­pan­ions, “We have waited for no pur­pose, for af­ter all there is noth­ing to see but a load of wood.”

Our mere an­tic­i­pa­tions of life out­run its re­al­i­ties.
