To show how important and busy he was, he picked up the phone and then asked the visitor to come in. As the man waited for the executive, the executive kept talking on the phone, nodding and saying, “No problem, I can handle that.” After a few minutes he hung up and asked the visitor what he could do for him.

The Story of Huh Saeng

In a lowly thatched cottage in the Namsan Valley there lived a poor couple, Mr. and Mrs. Huh Saeng. The husband confined himself for seven years and only read books in his cold room One day his wife, all in tears, said to him: “Look here, my good man! What is the use of all your book reading? I have spent my youth in washing and sewing for other people and yet I have no spare jacket or skirt to wear and I have had no food to eat during the past three days. I am hungry and cold. I can stand it no more!”

Hearing these words, the middle-aged scholar closed his book… rose to his feet and.. without saying another word, he went out of the door,… Arriving in the heart of the city, he stopped a passing gentleman. “Hello, my friend! Who is the richest man in town?” “Poor countryman! Don’t you know Byonssi, the millionaire? His glittering tile-roofed house pierced by twelve gates is just over there.” Huh Saeng bent his steps to the rich man’s house.

Having entered the big gate, he flung the guest-room door open and address.ed the host: “I need 10,000 yang as capital for my commercial business and I want you to lend me the money.” “Alright, sir.

Where shall I send the money?” “To the Ansong Market in care of acommission merchant.” “Very well, sir. I will draw on Kim, who does the biggest commission business in the Ansong Market. You’ll get the money there. “Good-bye, sir.”

When Huh Saeng was gone, all the other guests in the room asked Byonssi why he gave so much money to a beggar like stranger whose family name was unknown to him. But the rich man replied with a triumphant face: “Even though he was in ragged clothes, he spoke clearly to the point without betraying shame or inferiority, unlike common people who want to borrow money for a bad debt. Such a man

as he is either mad or self- confident in doing business. But judging from his dauntless eyes and booming voice he is a man, an uncommon man with a superhuman brain, worthy of my trust. I know money and I know men. Money often makes a man small, but a man like him makes big money. I am only glad to have helped a big man do big business.”


Moral of the story:

Courage and confidence builds trust worthiness.

Make strong your will,

don’t fall after defeat,

stand up at once,

complete your work with courage,

don’t go away from the field,

your zeal and courage,

will bring a new success,

touch the blue sky,

don’t loose courage


A nettle stung a boy playing in the fields. He ran home to his mother, telling her that he had but touched that nasty weed, and it had stung him. “It was just your touching it, my boy,” said the mother, “that caused it to sting you; the next time you meddle with a nettle, grasp it tightly, and it will do you no hurt.” Do boldly what you do at all.


Moral of the story:

Do boldly what ever you do.
