A beautiful story about how an old man used his power of knowledge to repair a ship engine which seem to be an impossible task for many experts.
Check out the “Power of Knowledge” Story here:
Once upon a time, a giant ship engine failed. The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine.
Then someone suggested the name of an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a young boy. Next day, they called the old man to see whether he can do what seems to be an impossible task.
The old man came carrying a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.
Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching that old man, hoping he would know what to do and somehow can fix the engine.
After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something.
Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!
A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.
“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”
So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”
The man sent a bill that read:
Tapping with a hammer…… ……… $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap……… ……… $ 9,998.00
