In ancient times, the king placed a boulder on a roadway. Then he hid and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king's wealthies merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.
Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear but none did anything to get the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carring a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After lots of pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasan t picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying on the road where the boulder had been.
