There is Good Wine in Crude Jar

By Anita Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

One day, a Roman princess met a scholar who looked ugly but erudite. The arrogant princess publicly ridiculed him and said: “How could the ugly people have great wisdom in their brain?”

After all, the man was a scholar. After being so humiliated, he was not angry. Instead, he was neither humble nor pushy, and played a homely chatter with the princess: “Dear princess, there must be a lot of fine wine in the palace?”

The princess nodded proudly: “Of course. The palace has the best wine.”

The scholar asked again: “What containers are those wine held in?”

The princess replied without hesitation: “The wine is held in jars.”

The scholar pretended to be surprised and asked with pity: “You are the princess of the Roman Empire. Why didn’t you hold the wine with magnificent gold and silver containers but humble jars?”

The princess thought his words made sense, so she ordered the servants to switch gold and silver containers to hold the wine immediately.

A few months later, the emperor held a state banquet but suddenly found that the delicious wine treasured for many years actually become dull. Emperor was furious and ordered that how it was.

The spoiled princess had to admit that it was she that asked the servants to do so. She thought it would be better, having not expected she had made things worse.

At the moment, the princess came to understand that the scholar had instigated her to do so. So she sent people to look for him and decided to get even with him afterwards.

“Why did you ask me to use gold and silver containers to hold wine?” asked the princess furiously.

The scholar smiled: “I just wanted to let you know a thing: just as the humble jar with good wine, there are many rare and precious things in the world, and they must be installed in the seemingly ordinary containers, in order to preserve its unique value. Distinguishing and employing people is also the same. Masters may have foolish intellect, and ordinary people may have great wisdom. You must not judge a person by appearances and deceive a person according to appearance.”
