Acres of diamonds

There was a Persian farmer named Ali Hafed, who sold his farm and left his family to travel the world in search of wealth.

He looked everywhere but he could not find the diamonds he lusted after. Finally, alone and in despair, he ended his life. His search for riches had consumed him.

Meanwhile, the man who bought the land from Hafed was grateful for every blade of grass that was now his and lavished love and hard work on his farm. At night, surrounded by his family and eating the fruits of his labor, he was a contented man.

One day, he mad a remarkable discovery. In the backyard that Ali Hafed had abandoned was a diamond mine – literally an acre of diamonds. The simple farmer became wealthy beyond his wildest dreams.
