A young boy was standing at the gate of his father’s farm when suddenly a hunting party approached. “I’m sorry, sir,” the boy said to the obvious leader of the hunters, “my father told me not to let anyone in.” “Do you know who I am?” asked the man. “No, sir.” “I am the Duke of Wellington.” The boy took off his hat an appropriately bowed to the royalty. “Surely, the Duke of Wellington will not ask me to open the gate against my father’s orders,” the boy said as he moved in front of the gateway. At that point the Duke took off his own hat and tipped it to the boy, “I honor the boy who is faithful to his duty.” The hunting party then went around the farmland. Life Lesson: Obedient people are often respected people.
