A little note for fun

- You didnít come last Sunday, did you?
- I spent the day selling.
- Selling! Are you a seller now? You have earned plenty of money, I hope?
- Yes, but it isnít for me.
- If I know you, it was a rummage sale?
- Yes; the poor lack of so many things…
- Itís true; itís very honorable to come to the aid of the poor.
- Yes, yes, you are right both of you. But I know a painter who has not enough money to buy colors…
- Your painter must not be very famous!
- He might be so one day, it has already happened, hasnít it?
- Look! If we were to come to aid to all the artists, there would be plenty of them to be aided, donít you think so?
- Moreover, how to choose the ones who deserve it?
- You are right again both of you. There are far fewer poor than artists in need. Moreover, itís much easier to choose the poor who deserve it.

(Praecor)
