Helping The Seedlings Grow

The was once a farmer in the State of Song. Every day he would go to the paddy fields to check on the growth of his seedlings. Because the seedlings were growing very slowly, he became rather worried.

One day, when the farmer was on his way to the fields, a wild idea suddenly flashed through his head. He hurried on his way and jumped into the field.

With great care, he lifted each seedling up a little from the soil. When the day's work was done, he dragged his weary body home, feeling very content.
As soon as he got to the door, he hollered to his wife, "Wife, I'm totally exhausted!"

"What did you do in the fields today?" asked his wife.
"Go to the fields and see for yourself!" replied the man proudly. "I helped the seedlings grow."

On hearing these words, his son ran joyfully to the paddy fields. It was now sunset, and dusk was shrouding the whole earth. From a distance the little boy could see that the seedlings in the paddy fields had all withered and died.
