The next day the miser came back to look at his gold, but he couldn't find any gold in the pit. 

Listening to the miser crying, the neighbours came running to his house. The miser showed them the hole and told them about the gold he hid under the tree. "Did you ever spend any of your gold?" asked one of the neighbours.

"No, I would only dig it up. Looking it made me happy!" said the miser. " You never used anything at all? The gold you had was of no use to you. Just look into the pit and assume that the gold is still inside it. So that you can be as happy as you were before." said the neighbour.


Moral Of the Story:  
  • Wealth unused might as well not exist.
  • A possession is worth no more than the use we make of it.                                          
Popular Quote:  
  • The Real measure of our wealth is how much we'd be worth if we lost all our money. - John Henry Jowett
