Chinese Wisdom

A plane crashed in a desert and only three of its passengers survived two mascular men and an old
Chinese man. They decided to walk toward the nearest town. It was late in the afternoon and they had
been walking since early morning. Having no food at all there wasn't anything for the three of them
to eat however they could see the town in a distance.

Toward the end of the day, the two mascular guys started talking about how hungry they were and about
the huge meals they were going to eat when they reached town. When one of the men asked the old man
if he was also hungry, he just shrugged his shoulders and said, "No."

Later that evening, after they had arrived in town, all three ordered large steak dinners. As the old
man proceeded to eat everything in sight with great gusto, one of the other guys reminded him that
less than an hour earlier he had told them that he was not hungry.

"Not wise to be hungry then," he replied. "No food."
