Teaching Story - The Czar And The Hawk
by Life Positive
When at last he could take it to his lips, the hawk flapped his wings and spilt the water. A little vexed, the czar took the cup to the spring and waited until it filled up again, but once again, the hawk made it
fall down. Now really irritated, the czar repeated the operation for the third time, and, again the incorrigible hawk prevented him from drinking it.
“So you do it on purpose!” cried out the enraged czar and threw him against the rock. The hawk died instantly. When the czar went again to fill the cup, his servants arrived and shouted at him:“Don’t drink, don’t drink, Sir. A snake poured its poison in this water!”
“I see how much that bird was worth when it is too late!” the czar said, weeping copiously. - Leo Tolstoy
Apply it: When you are stopped from doing something, especially by someone concerned about you, pause for a while and think – perhaps it is for your good.
