“A man and his son lived in a small town many years ago. They were not extremely wealthy, but they sold flowers to the townsfolk, and that paid the bills. Over time, fewer and fewer people came to buy flowers, and the father realized that the local monastery was handing out flowers for free to people who passed by. Soon the family's situation became dire, so the father told his son to take some flowers and see if the family could supply them with flowers. The son entered the monastery and was welcomed by the monks, who showed him a lush garden where they grew their own flowers, so they didn't need to buy the family's. However, the monks were sympathetic for the young boy and realized they depended on the flowers to make a living, so they agreed to stop giving them away. The boy ran back to his father and told him the good news. "Son, let this be a lesson to you." The father said. "Only you can prevent florist friars." - CS-M Hoodo
