    Question What?

    Advertisements
    Is the moral of this story?

    Two men are terminally ill and bedridden. One is seated by the window, and the other in a windowless corner. Every day, the man by the window tells all kinds of stories about the view from the window: kids playing, people buying fresh fruit in the market, even parades sometimes. The other man is comforted at first, but gradually grows jealous, until one day his hidden jealousy drives him to kill the other man in the middle of the night. When they move him to the other man's vacated bed and he eagerly moves over to look out at all these wonderful things, he finds out that there is nothing but the wall of an adjacent building to look at. Presumably, he feels really bad.

    Jealousy is an ugly thing.

    Killing someone to have what they have will sometimes show you that you didn't understand what they had at all.

    The grass isn't greener on the other side. Never a good idea to entice someone else.

    Tree hugging, peace loving, hippie.
    I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church.
    For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
