A camel dealer reached a village to sell fine animals at a very good price.
Everyone bought one, except Mr. Hoosep.
Some time later, the village received a visit from another dealer, with excellent camels, but they were much more expensive.
This time, Hoosep bought some animals.
“You did not buy the camels when they were almost for free, and now you pay almost double,” criticized his friends.
“Those cheap ones were very expensive for me, because at that time I had very little money,”answered Hoosep, “these animals might seem more expensive, but for me they are cheap, because I have more than enough to buy them.”
