The Dog and the Physician
A Dog that had seen a Physician attending the burial of a wealthy
patient, said: "When do you expect to dig it up?"
"Why should I dig it up?" the Physician asked.
"When I bury a bone," said the Dog, "it is with
an intention to
uncover it later and pick it."
"The bones that I bury," said the Physician, "are those that
no longer pick."
