There was once a miser. He melted all his money into a block of gold and buried it in a pit. Every day he would dig it up and smile to see it.
One night the gold-block was stolen. So, the miser was in tears. A friend of his saw him weeping and said, " You should bury a stone in the pit and look at it every day. You never spent money when you had it Was it better then a stone anyway?"
