Story: The King’s Teeth


Once there was a king who dreamed of losing all his teeth

The king then called two of the dream interpreters to explain the meaning of his dream

teeth, tooth, gold tooth, king teeth
The first man told the king that the dream meant that the whole royal family would die. Upon hearing this, the king ordered that the guards beat him and punish him outside.

On the other hand the second man told the king that this dream meant that the king would live longer than the royal family, which in fact meant that the royal family would die first. Because of his wise words, the king gave him a gift of riches.

People can escape life’s dangers by doing the right thing, saying the right thing, and doing things at the right time. The same definition given in a different way can produce different results.
