- - "Nasruddin, my son, get up early in the mornings."
- "Why, father?"
- "It is a good habit. Why, once I rose at dawn and went for a walk. I
found on the road a sack of gold".
- "How did you know it was not lost the previous night?"
- "That is not the point. In any case, it had not been there the night
before. I noticed that".
- "Then it isn't lucky for everyone to get up early. The man who lost the
gold must have been up earlier than you".
