Reminds me of the story of the monk who traveled an arduous two days and two nights to visit his brother, sister-in-law and nephew. The wise monk had been invited to reason with the boy who refused to chop wood or carry water. After spending an uneventful weekend with the family, the monk prepared to depart. As the boy was lacing his uncle's sandals for the trip home he felt a tear fall on his head. He looked up and saw the monk looking down at him. the monk's eyes were filled with tears. The boy began to chop wood and carry water again.
