Creations

God created the donkey

donkey

and said to him: “You will work untiringly from sunrise to sunset carrying burdens on your back. You will eat grass, have no intelligence and live 50 years. You will be a donkey.”

The donkey answered: “I will be a donkey, but to live 50 years is too much, give me only 20 years”

God granted his wish.

God created the dog

dog

and said to him:”You will guard the house of man. You will be his best friend. You will eat the scraps that he gives to you and you will live 30 years. You will be a dog.”

The dog answered: “Sir, to live 30 years is too much, give me only 15 years.”

God granted his wish.

God created the monkey

monkey

and said to him: “You will swing from branch to branch doing tricks. You will be amusing and you will live 20 years. You will be a monkey.”

The monkey answered: “To live 20 years is too much, give me only 10 years.”

God granted his wish.

Finally God created the man

man

and said to him: “You will be the only rational creature on the face of the earth. You will use your intelligence to become master over all the animals. You will dominate the world and you will live 20 years. You will be a man.”

Man responded: “I will be a man but to live only 20 years is very little, give me 30 years that the donkey refused, 15 years that the dog did not want and 10 years the monkey refused.”

God granted his wish.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And since then

Man lives 20 years as a man.

Marries and spends 30 years like a donkey, working hard and carrying all the burdens on his back.

Then his children are grown up, he lives 15 years like a dog taking care of the house and eating whatever is given to him.

When he is old, he retires and lives 10 years like a monkey, going from house to house, from one son or daughter to another and doing tricks to amuse his grandchildren.

That’s Life.
