The Thief and the Old Man


A thief approaches an old man and tells him to give him all of his money.  The old man turns around and extends his hand offering him his wallet, surprising the thief with his ease and compliance.  The old man gazes into his eyes and seems to look deep within him, unsettling the thief.  There is a pause.

Is this all that you want…?” he asks the thief, “Or is there something more you desire, in your life?

The thief nervously reaches out to take the wallet but pulls back… and walks away.
