Cuento Taoist – The Fisherman
Category : blog
A wealthy industrialist North was horrified to see a fisherman South calmly leaning against his boat, smoking his pipe.
“Why have not gone fishing?”, asked the industrialist.
“Because I have caught enough fish today”, replied the fisherman.
“Why do not fish more than you need?”, Industrial insisted.
“What would I do with it?”, asked the fisherman turn.
“You'd make more money”, was the response. “That way you could put a motor to your boat. Then you could go to deeper waters and catch more fish. Then win enough to buy nylon nets, with which you would get more fish and more money. Soon to have two boats win… and until a genuine fleet. Then you would be rich, as I”.
“And what would then?”, asked the fisherman again.
“You could sit and enjoy life”, said the industrialist.”
What do you think I'm doing right now?”, replied the fisherman happy.
