The Three Suitors

There once lived a wealthy and powerful princess. One day three suitors appeared to her and made proposals of marriage.

The first suitor spoke: "I am strong and smart. Make me your husband and I will increase your lands and wealth a hundredfold."

The second suitor spoke: "I am already wealthy. Marry me and it will increase your lands and wealth a hundredfold."

The third suitor spoke: "I am a poor and uneducated man. I can offer you only love and devotion."

The princess considered the words of the three suitors. She married the second suitor and made the third suitor her secret lover.
