The Mortal’s Way

Turkish Hodja Proverb:

One day four boys approached Hodja and gave him a bagful of walnuts. “Hodja, we can’t agree how to divide these walnuts amongst ourselves fairly. Can you please help us?” Hodja asked the boys “Do you want God’s way of distribution or mortal’s way?” “We want God’s way” the children replied. Hodja opened the bag and gave two handfuls to one boy, one handful to the second boy, two nuts to the third boy and nothing to the fourth.”What kind of distribution is this?” the children asked baffled. “Well this is God’s way,” he answered “he gives some people a lot, some people a little and nothing to others. If you had asked for mortal’s way I would have given you each the same amount.”
