Long,long ago there lived a king.He loved horses. One day he asked an artist to draw him a beautiful horse.
The artist said,“All right, but you must wait.” So the king waited. He waited and waited.
At last, after a year he could not wait any longer. He went to see the artist himself.
Quickly the artist brought out paper and a brush. In five minutes he finished drawing a very beautiful horse.
The king was angry. “You can draw a good horse in five minutes,yet you kept me waiting for a year. Why?”
“Come with me,please,” said the artist.
They went to the artist’s workroom. There the king saw piles and piles of paper. On every piece of paper was a picture of a horse.
“It took me more than a year to learn to draw a beautiful horse in five minutes.” the artist said.
