       There was once an Indian king who had a son. The king knew that one day his son would become king in his place, so he sent for the best teachers in the country. “Teach my son everything you know,” he told them.
  The teachers worked hard with the boy and at last he could answer all their questions.
  “You have done well,” the king said to them, and handed each of them a bag of gold.
  “We have done the best we can,” they said, “and your son now knows a great deal about the past. However, a truly wise man also knows something about the future.” With these words, they left the palace.
  The king thought about what they had said, and then sent for a fortune-teller. “Teach my son how to foretell the future,” the king ordered him.
  The fortune-teller taught the boy everything he knew and then returned to his home.
  Now the king sent for the wisest man in the country. “Give my son a test,” he ordered.
  “Very well,” the wisest man said. “It’s a simple test, but it will tell you a lot about your son.”
  The wisest man took something out of his pocket and showed it to the king and the court officials,but not to the young prince. Then he closed his hand and showed it to the boy. “Tell me what is in my hand,” he said.
  The boy felt the wisest man’s hand and thought hard. “It’s hard and white,” the boy said. “It’s round and has a hole in the middle. It must be a grindstone.”
  Everyone laughed, because although the object was hard, white and round with a hole in the middle, it was a pearl,not a grindstone.
  “True wisdom,” the wisest man in the kingdom said, “comes not from knowing everything, but from making the best use of the knowledge we have.”
