A businessman had four wives; his favorite was his fourth wife, to whom he gave gorgeous clothes and delicacies to eat. He carefully nurtured her, and gave her the best care. 

He also loved his third wife and was quite proud of her; she was always showing off in front of friends. However, the husband was always in constant fear that she might find another man and leave him. 

He also loved his second wife. She was very thoughtful, always very patient, a business woman and confidant. Whenever the husband encountered problems, he always looked to his second wife, and she always helped him out of the woods and ride out the storm. 

The first wife of the businessman was a very loyal partner who took care of the entire household and made ​​tremendous contributions. However, despite the first wife being deeply in love with the businessman, he did not love her, almost ignoring her. 

One day the businessman was sick and not long after, he learned that he would die soon. Thinking of his luxurious life, he could not help himself say, "Now I have four wives with me, but after I die, I will be alone, how lonely, ah!" 

So, he asked the fourth wife: "I love you, give you the best treatment, take best care of you and now I'm going to die, will you follow me in death?"

 

"No way," the she shouted! Her answer was like a knife in the merchant's heart. 

 

Sad the merchant then asked his third wife: "My life is over and I love you now, I'm dying, will give me companionship?"

 

"No" the third wife replied, "Life is so beautiful and my family wish is that when you die, I will get married!" The husband’s heart sank, cold. 

He asked his second wife: "I always turn to you, you have always helped me out of trouble and now I need your help when I die, will you keep company with me?"

 

"I'm sorry, Honey, this time I can not help you!" the second wife replied," I can bury you at most."  Her answer, like thunder and lightning, crushed the businessman. 

Then a voice sounded: "I'll come with you no matter where you go either to heaven or hell, I'll follow you." The merchant looked up to see his first wife. Her skinny looks, like she suffered malnutrition. The businessman painful, said: "I should have taken care of you but ....." 

 

In fact, in life we all have four wives: 

 

1. The fourth wife is our body. No matter how generous, how much time and effort to keep it in good condition, a beautiful image, to meet all its needs. When the time comes it will go away. 

2.  The third wife is our reputation, rights, wealth. No matter how much it brought us glory, when we die, it belongs to someone else. 

3. The second wife is our family and friends. When we are alive, no matter how close they were to us, they can only accompany us to the cemetery. 

4 The first wife is actually our soul and in our pursuit of material, wealth and creature comfort, it is often forgotten by us. 

Do not lose yourself! 

Translated from an original story in Chinese from Tenki
