A scholar then asked:
“Could you advise me of a proper vocation, Master?”
He then said:
“Some men can earn their keep with the power of their minds. Others must use their backs and hands. This is the same in nature as it is with man. Some animals acquire their food easily, such as rabbits, horses and elephants. Other animals must struggle for their food, like flamingos, moles, and ants. So you see, the nature of the vocation must fit the individual.”
“But I have no abilities, desires, or talents, Master,” the man sobbed.
“Have you ever thought of becoming a stockbroker?” the Master queried.
