The Cow With The Golden Milk

The Cow with the Golden Milk

On a farm on a bright summer day.

Sat Farmer Charles James and his son on a bale of hay.

Look at Tracie the cow more precious than silk.

Yes, said his father. That’s the cow with the golden milk. Wow! Said his son. Golden milk from a cow! Yes, said his father. But let me explain now.

There are two choices you have on this farm son. You can have the cow that produces the golden milk or the Golden milk itself, but you must choose one.

With the golden milk you could purchase all that you can ever dream of. You can buy homes and cars and vacations, all kinds of stuff. The sky’s the limit, whatever your heart’s desire. But one day that golden milk will expire.

Wow, so all that I have would be lost, because the milk would expire and I couldn’t pay the cost?

That’s right son, because of your losses you would be quite sore; but if you owned the cow that produces the golden milk you could always produce more.

  1. Very nice story 😊 I read a similar story in French when I was at primary school. It was ‘Clodette et le Pot au Lait ‘. Thank you for sharing and bringing back those delicious childhood memories 😀

  2. Dear friend,

    It is the same with God and wishes: if we could choose whatever we want, because of our wishes, but when they are limited, then it is a better choice to choose God who is behind all, who is the root of all – the wishes are only the smyptomes, the shadow of the light, the sun Himself…

    Thank you so much
    Have a great day

      1. You are welcome! That is a great story about the idea of “capitalism” and how it works. The cow is “capital”; the milk is the output. People who focus on output (Marxists, typically) miss the point about how important the capital (means of production) is….

      2. Do not know if this interests you or not, but I bet you could expand that into a children’s book. Getting the message out is much needed…. (and it might bring some money!)
