There is an old legend of a benevelent king who had his men place a great heavy stone on a certain roadway over which all his subjects would have to travel. He then hid himself to see who would try to remove the stone. No one stoopped to try to remove the stone but all worked their way around it, loudly blaming the king for not keeping the roadway clear. Finally a poor peasant farmer on his way to town with a load of vegetables, which he hoped to sell in the marketplace, came to the blocked roadway. He laid down his load and with considerable effort and loss of time managed to move the great stone to the side of the roadway. Then, turning to leave,he spied a purse which had been under the stone. He opened the purse and found it to be filled with pieces of gold with a note from the king indicating that it was all to be the property of the one who would remove the stone.
