Format: Paperback
Words for the wise is a book that contains twelve stories. Each one, more beautiful than the other.
The poor debtor is the first and the best story about a poor man who works himself so hard to pay off his debts. With that hard work of his, he sacrifices his health, his childrens lifestyle and everything he ever worked for. But a miracle happens and his creditor hears the poor debtors struggles and he comes to a win-win solution and forgives him his debts telling that he wouldn't want to get money from a poor person just to add it to his richness.
So this was the first story but the other stories are almost as nice as this one.
Very very smart...
