The King of Epirus once recounted to a favorite and wise servant all the conquests which he proposed to make in order to expand the borders of his country. The list was long and when he finally ended the account, the servant asked, “And what will your Majesty do after all those battles?”
“I will enjoy myself with my friends.” answered the king, “sharing their good company over a meal of fine food with wonderful musicians playing while we dine.”
“And why can’t your Majesty do that now?” asked the servant.
