Two friends, Marius and George met. They learn at the same school.
Marius wants to read. He says to George: "George, you have so many nice books. Can you lend me one?"
But George is selfish, he does not lend books. He replies: "Why do you want to take it home? You can read it here, in my house!"
Marius thinks that his friend is a bad boy, but he does not say anything.
The following week, George comes to Jim and says: "Marius, you have a good garden knife. Can you lend it to me? I want to use it in my garden tomorrow."
Marius answers: "Why do you want to take my knife home? You can use it in my garden."
