Master and apprentice

Master and apprentice.

An old man and a young man are talking to eachother.

When the old man hears of the young man's achievements he says he feels forlorn that his own life hadn't been like this.

The young man disagree's and says, 'Come now, you have done many things and achieved much'

The old man says, 'No, I am a fool before your achievement'

The young man's attitude changes now and he finally says, 'If you would be willing to change what you have had and what you have done, that is, your natural path as a man I am ashamed to say I will have to surpass you as I follow none of these ideals.'

The old man doesn't understand and changes the subject.
