A rich man once asked a friend, "Why am I criticized for being rich? Everyone knows I will leave everything to charity when I die."
"Well," said the friend, "Let me tell you about the pig and the cow. The pig was lamenting to the cow one day about how unpopular he was."
"People are always talking about your gentleness and kind eyes," said the pig. "Sure you give milk and cream, but I give more. I give bacon, ham and bristles. They even pickle my feet. Still nobody likes me. Why is that?"
The cow thought a minute, then replied, "Well, maybe it's because I give while I'm still living."
