Have you heard the story of the king who never found happiness? All the musicians and court jesters could not bring him the needed lift. A wise man told the king that he needed to wear the shirt of a truly happy man. The king went from village to village and he heard of a man who was known as being truly happy. He searched far and wide for this man so he could wear the man's shirt and find true happiness. There was only one problem. When the king found the man, he discovered he had no shirt.
