The Quaker and The Truly Satisfied

A Quaker had this sign put up on a vacant piece of land next to his home: THIS LAND WILL BE GIVEN
TO ANYONE WHO IS TRULY SATISFIED.

A wealthy farmer who was riding by stopped to read the sign and said to himself, “Since our friend the
Quaker is so ready to part with this plot, I might as well claim it before someone else does. I am a rich
man and have all I need, so I certainly qualify.”

With that he went up to the door and explained what he was there for. “And are you truly satisfied?” the
Quaker asked.

“I am indeed, for I have everything I need.”

“Friend,” said the Quaker, “if you are satisfied, what do you want the land for?”
