The tree was too hard to cut. They gave up to cut it down. They said the tree is huge, but not be used for anything. They called it useless.
One hot summer day, a famous philosopher, Zhuang Zi found the tree. It was hot and Zhuang Zi was tired from walking long distance. He lied down on the foot of the tree and took a nap. The shade of the tree was perfect to protect him from strong sun light of summer. In the shade, a gentle breeze was very comfortable. He slept for a couple of hours and felt refreshed. After he left, the villagers realized the real use of the tree. Nobody call it "useless" afterward.
This story tells us the value of things can be changed depending on how you view it, how you use it. Huge useless tree to build a house was perfect for providing shade to take a nap. Is bad economy crisis or chance for us?
