One evening Mulla Nasruddin was walking alone and he was hailed by a beggar who said, ‘You walk as though you want some one to talk to.’
Mulla was distracted and took time to respond. The beggar somewhat irritated said, ‘You ought not give yourself high airs. If you look down you might also find people worth talking to.’
‘You spoke truly, friend.’ Mulla said, ‘but from experience I know it would need a little hand out also to make my words heard.’

Young Nasruddin was having his first ride. Suleiman his father was sure the boy of 12 was old enough to ride the family donkey by himself.
With all the siblings watching him the boy had to prove he was as good as they.
But the animal was restive sensing the rider was a novice. The animal slipped and slid as the boy climbed her. ‘Get on from the good side Boy’ his father said.’
The boy said, ‘That is the trouble: never trust a donkey that shies away from the good side.’
