Young men from all parts of the land went to him to learn wisdom from
him; and he said so many pleasant things, and said them in so
delightful a way, that no one ever grew tired of listening to him.

One summer he built himself a house, but it was so small that his
neighbors wondered how he could be content with it.

"What is the reason," said they, "that you, who are so great a man,
should build such a little box as this for your dwelling house?"

"Indeed, there may be little reason," said he; "but, small as the
place is, I shall think myself happy if I can fill even it with true
friends."
