The Old,The Old Wine
Once there lived a rich man who was justly proud ofhis cellar and the wine therein. And there was onejug of ancient vintage kept for some occasion knownonly to himself.
The governor of the state visited him, and he bethought him and said, "That jug shall not beopened for a mere governor."
And a bishop of the diocese visited him, but he said to himself, "Nay, I will not open that jug.He would not know its value, nor would its aroma reach his nostrils."
The prince of the realm came and supped with him. But he thought, "It is too royal a wine for amere princeling."
And even on the day when his own nephew was married, he said to himself, "No, not to theseguests shall that jug be brought forth."
And the years passed by, and he died, an old man, and he was buried like unto every seed andacorn.
And upon the day that he was buried the ancient jug was brought out together with other jugsof wine, and it was shared by the peasants of the neighbourhood. And none knew its great age.
To them, all that is poured into a cup is only wine
