In the old days, when men were allowed to have many wives,
a middle-aged Man had one wife that was old and one that
was young; each loved him very much, and desired to see
him like herself. Now the Man’s hair was turning grey,
which the young Wife did not like, as it made him look too
old for her husband. So every night she used to comb his
hair and pick out the white ones. But the elder Wife saw
her husband growing grey with great pleasure, for she did
not like to be mistaken for his mother. So every morning
she used to arrange his hair and pick out as many of the
black ones as she could. The consequence was the Man soon
found himself entirely bald.
Yield to all and you will soon have nothing to yield.
