"How much do you Love me, my Daughters”, asked the king.
The eldest replied, “As much as I love gold, Papa”.
The middle one said,”As much as Silver Papa....”
And the youngest declared,” As much As I Love salt in my food, Papa !”
The shocked King told his youngest daughter she was ungrateful only to realise years later, how right she was to compare her Love for him with salt in her food!
