Here you will find the Poem Ch 07 On The Effects Of Education Story 01 of poet Sa di
A vezier who had a stupid son gave him in charge of a scholar to instruct him and if possible to make him intelligent. Having been some time under instruction but ineffectually, the learned man sent one to his father with the words: `The boy is not becoming intelligent and has made a fool of me.? When a nature is originally receptive Instruction will take effect thereon. No kind of polishing will improve iron Whose essence is originally bad. Wash a dog in the seven oceans, He will be only dirtier when he gets wet. If the ass of Jesus be taken to Mekkah He will on his return still be an ass.
