Two Jews, one poor and the other wealthy, were waiting to consult with a famous Tzadik (righteous sage). The rich man was called in first, and his meeting lasted for an entire hour.
When the poor man was finally called in, he was given just a few minutes. He protested and said: Rebbe, that’s not fair!
The Tzadik said: When you entered, I could see right away that you were poor. But I had to listen to the other person for an hour to discover that he was even poorer than you!
