Stories & Reflections
Nasrudin spent the entire autumn working his garden. The flowers had blossomed in the spring – and Nasrudin noticed a few dandelions appearing, which he hadn’t planted.
Nasrudin tore them up. But the pollen had already spread and others began to grow. He tried to find a weed killer which only killed dandelions. A specialist told him any type of poison would end up killing all the other flowers. In despair, he went to ask a gardener for help.
– It is like a marriage – said the gardener. – Along with the good things, a few little inconveniences always appear.
– What can I do? – insisted Nasrudin.
– Learn how to love them . Although they are flowers you did not count on, they are still part of the garden.
