Home Lifestyle Feeling Good Revenge for Me

Revenge for Me

There was a mean son who always beat up this father. His father, however, still took great care of his grandson and carried him around wherever he went.

A neighbor asked him: “Your son is not filial to you. Why do you love his son so much?”

The grandfather replied: “For no reason other than I want to take good care of him so that he can carry out revenge for me when he grows up.”

Good Laughs (笑得好) is a collection of short stories edited by the Chinese doctor Cheng-Jin Shi (石成金) of the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912). This collection can be considered as the Chinese version of Aesop’s Fables. Dr. Shi was believed to have lived between the Kangxi and early Qianlong reigns. He also authored many other books on remedies for life and health.

Good Laughs is meant to nourish the heart with stories. In the preface, Dr. Shi wrote: “People are entertained by being sarcastic; I inspire people with sarcasm. It entertains the heart, but it can also save a life like acupuncture.”
