Treasury of Tales
Nothing Teaches Like A Story
Tales have been told to teach important lessons for thousands of years. The truth of a good story goes beyond the accuracy of detail. The same story can be told many different ways to portray the same truth. The truth is in the story...not the details. The story of Jesus is told in four different gospels each with it's own truth.
Native Americans use animal stories to teach lessons to people that might be too personal to take if the advice were given directly. Told as an animal story a human being can draw a lesson to improve his own behavior without having to face the reality that his behavior needs changing.
Here I hope to collect many stories worth telling about the pursuit of capital. Some will be stories I've heard, some stories I've told.
Native Americans never miss a chance to tell a story, but the best time for stories is winter when the summer work is all done and the weather keeps new ventures to a minimum. The penny capitalist will be busy growing his capital, but there will always be time between ventures to share stories. If you have a good story that needs telling, let us know.
