An old man died and left his son a lot of money But the son was a foolish young man and he quickly spent all the money so that soon he had nothing left Of course when that happened all his friends left him.
When he was quite poor and alone he went to see Nasreddin who was a kind clever old man and often helped people when they had troubles ‘My money has finished and my friends have gone’ said the young man ‘What will happen to me now?’
‘Don’t worry young man’ answered Nasreddin ‘Everything will soon be all right again Wait and you will soon feel much happier’ The young man was very glad ‘Am I going to get rich again then?’
he asked Nasreddin ‘No I didn’t mean that’ said the old man ‘I meant that you would soon get used to being poor and to having no friends’.
