One day,plato asked his teacher,"What is love?How can I find it?"
His teacher answered ;"There is a vast wheat field in front .Walk forward without turning back and pick only one stalk.If you find the most magnificent stalk then you have found love."
Plato walked forward,and a long time passed before he returned with empty hands,having picked nothing.
His teacher asked ,"Why did you not pick any stalk?"
Plato answered ;"Because I could only pick once,and yet I could not turn back.I did find the most magnificent stalk,but did not know if there were any better ones ahead ,so I did not pick it.As I walked future,the stalks that I saw were not as good as the earlier one,so I did not pick any in the end."
His teacher then said,"And that is love."
On another day,Plato ask his teacher,"What is marriage?How can I find it?"
His teacher answered,"There is a thrivign forest in front.Walk forward without turning back,and chop down only one tree,If you find the tallest tree,then you have found marriage."
Plato walked forward,and before long,he returned with a tree.The tree was not thriving,and it was not tall either,It was only an ordinary tree.
His teacher asked,"Why did you chop down such an ordinary tree?"
