And one of my favourite fables...
Once upon a time, two brothers left the countryside to move to the city to look
for work. Just outside of the city, the first brother met an old man and asked
him, "What are the people like in this city?" The old man replied, 'Well, how
were they where you come from?' "They were all grumpy and miserable," replied
the brother. "That's why I decided to leave." "You'll find the people here
about the same," said the old man.
A little while later, the second brother met the old man. He too asked, "What
are the people like in this city? The old man replied, 'Well, how were they
where you come from?' "They were wonderful people. Friendly and kind." replied
the brother. "That's why it was so hard for me to leave." "You'll find the
people here about the same," said the old man.
