Everyone thinks of changing the world Quote Meaning

In many public gatherings such as parties, I find people who talk mostly about the social issues in this world, and they would propose a lot of solutions which the government and society should undertake to get rid of those problems. When they offer solutions, their personal problems come into my mind, and I always wonder why they cannot use their intelligence to solve their problem and instead to think about problems which are not bothering them significantly.

Story about foolish king who covered the road

A long time ago, there was a king who ruled a prosperous country. For a long time, he wished to go for hunting in the nearby forest without any horse and soldiers to help. One fine day, he went on a trip to a nearby forest for hunting alone by walk.

When he was back to his palace, he complained that his feet have been painful, since it was the first time that he went for such a lengthy trip. Moreover, the road which leads to the forest was quite rough and stony. The king wanted to cover every single road in the entire country with leather, such that not only the king but also his people will be relieved from the pain.

He explained his idea to his minister. Minister being wise man advised the king that it would require a large number of leather sheets to cover up the whole nation. It would cost a lot and put pressure on the Treasury as well as it would require a huge effort to do that. He advised the king to cover his foot with leather which would cost nothing and less effort compared to covering the entire road.

The king was shocked to hear such a simple solution to the problem. He agreed to his suggestion. The production of shoes started in his kingdom. The king, as well as the people in his country, started wearing shoes. It slowly got spread into other nations as well.

Moral of this change quote story is that “One should not expect the environment or society to change. Instead, he should change himself first.”
