In Kappl at some time in the past there lived a peasant woman on a small farm. One day Paulina – for such was her name – wanted to collect the eggs from the stable. As she did every morning. But when she entered the stable, there were no eggs to be seen. The hens had “mislaid” them all.
“THAT IS THE BLESSING FOR TREATING YOUR FELLOW MAN FAIRLY”When the local school was over for the day, the children stormed out of the doors and into the peasant woman’s garden. The children organized a huge egg hunt and hey presto! – they found more than forty eggs in the stable.
A small but very true piece of wisdom
“That is the blessing for treating your fellow man fairly, too” said the woman. And, well, what can we say – it’s true.
