"A Love Story"
A very poor man lived with his wife.
One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.
The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he didn't even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.
He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.
He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut.
She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.
Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes. Not for the futility of their actions.But for the reciprocity of their love.

Título da história: Uma história de amor
Um homem muito pobre morava com sua esposa. Um dia, sua esposa, que tinha cabelos muito longos, pediu-lhe que lhe comprasse um pente para que seus cabelos crescessem bem e ficassem bem bonitos.
O homem lamentou muito e disse não. Ele explicou que nem mesmo tinha dinheiro para consertar a pulseira do relógio que acabara de quebrar. Ela não insistiu no pedido.
O homem foi trabalhar e passou por uma relojoaria, vendeu seu relógio danificado por um preço baixo preço e foi comprar um pente para sua esposa.
Ele voltou para casa à noite com o pente na mão pronto para dar a sua esposa.
Ele ficou surpreso quando viu sua esposa com um corte de cabelo muito curto. Ela havia vendido o cabelo e estava segurando uma nova pulseira de relógio.
Lágrimas escorriam simultaneamente de seus olhos. Não pela futilidade de suas ações. Mas pela reciprocidade de seu amor.
Moral da história: "O amor tem que ser mostrado por atos, não por palavras"
