A man had a wife and a mistress and he didn’t know who to choose. He decided to go see a wise man to find an answer to his problem.

He asked him if he had to be with his wife or mistress.

The wise, looked at him and took two pots in his hands: one with a rose and the other with a cactus and asked him: “What do you do if I tell you to choose one of these two pots?”.

The man looked at him and replied: “Obviously I choose the rose!”.

The wise smile: “You proved that you were reckless and rushed. You don’t deserve any of the two pots: neither the one containing the rose nor the one with a cactus.

Some men, driven by beauty and socializing, choose what seems to shine most. The Rose is beautiful but wither soon.

However, the cactus, even though it is not very beautiful at first sight, remains the same, whatever the climate: Dark Green with so many thorns but when bloom offers you a beautiful flower.

Your wife knows all your weaknesses, flaws and mistakes and loves you for what you are. Your Mistress doesn’t want you whole but just the beautiful part: your smiles, victories, joy, caresses.

Your wife loves your tears, your defeats: She’s beside you for better and for worse.

When the difficult times arrive, your mistress will go away and look for someone else. Your wife will stay by your side.

Don’t look now that everything looks good. Things won’t go that long. It’s too late for you. You despised the cactus to get the rose and you don’t deserve either.

But know that the time will come when you understand your mistake, but it will be too late.”

Don’t leave your diamond at home and go for stones elsewhere.
