- Rebbe, I do not understand: you come to the poor man - he is friendly and helps as he can. You come to the rich man - he does not see anyone, does not want to hear anything. Is it really just for the money?
    “Look out the window.” What do you see?
    - A woman and a child are walking, the cart is going to the bazaar, the wind is blowing the poplar ...
    - Well, now look in the mirror. What do you see?
    “Well, what can I see there?” Only himself.
    - So: a glass window and a glass mirror. It’s worth adding a little silver - and you can only see yourself.

    Hasidic parable.
