a mechanic raised a boy and the boy became a fisherman. the fisherman raised a boy and the boy became a mechanic. the mechanic raised a boy and that boy became a scholar. the scholar went home and saw his father and his grandfather and his great-granfather had seemingly never questioned anything outside the world immediate. he was furious with them. so the scholar raised a boy and the boy became a minister and went off to hebrew university to study. when the boy came back to his father, they had a long scholarly talk about universal truths. the scholar asked the boy what he'd learned in university. the boy said, "i learned how to fix my own car and to fish."
