Parables, anecdotes and fables have always been popular ways of conveying essential wisdom for personal development. Nuggets of Wisdom is one such book - a rare collection of little tales, stories and incidents that the author has painstakingly collected over the years. Each is a prime example of earthy wisdom that young people need so badly, but which are so hard to come by in the rush of coping with the minutiae of daily life. They uplift the mind, open practical channels of right action, as well as appeal to one's higher consciousness and sense of ethics, besides promoting robust common sense.Bookish learning is soon forgotten but the wisdom contained in this book will always stay with the reader. It is highly recommended to the younger generation, so that they may live their lives to their fullest potential!

Who is Rich or Poor?
A rich man met a holy man who had no money with him. The rich man offered to give him five thousand rupees but he refused to take it. The rich man was surprised and asked the reason for it. The holy man said,How much money do you have? The rich man said,I have several thousand rupees. Then the holy man asked,Do you wish to have more? The rich man said, Of course. I want to have much more. I want to be a millionaire.Then the holy man laughed and said,How can I accept money from a man who is poorer than I? The rich man could not quite understand what the holy man meant. The holy man explained, Look, though I have nothing, I desire nothing. Since I want nothing, I have no needs, and am therefore rich. You have enough, but still you want more. This shows you are poorer than I.The rich man felt ashamed and sought the forgiveness of the holy man.
Moral: Contentment is the greatest wealth.
