Knowledge, wealth and honour were friends.
One day the time of their separation had come.
Knowledge said,"I can be found in places of learning."
Wealth said, "You can look for me in the palaces of the rich and the rulers."
Honour however kept quiet. Knowledge and Wealth wanted know why Honour remained silent. Honour heaved a sigh and said, "Once I part form someone there is no way to get me back."
