(Click the Play button below to watch video)

One night, King Solomon who had everything except happiness dreamed that there was a ring with magical powers able to make him happy. He offered a reward to anyone finding the ring. When one of the King's subjects brought him the ring, engraved on it was: "This too shall pass." The King soon realized the power of the ring. When happy, he would look at the ring and see, "This too shall pass". When sad, the ring reminded him, "This too shall pass". Abraham Lincoln told this story in a major speech. Commenting on "This too shall pass", he said, "How much it expresses. How sobering in an hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction."
