Young people have no experience, so they can not understand that a fruitless loan, like a deep well, quickly pulls the person down and for a while, the person stumbles in vain. Regret blocks the light of the sun and darkens the day like the night, and its nights are sad and sorrowful; But I do not oppose borrowing gold. I encourage this. My only advice is to borrow for a reasonable purpose. I achieved my first real success as a businessman with borrowed gold; But what should the lender do in such a case? A young man who is completely disappointed and does not do anything … he is disappointed and makes no effort to repay the loan. My heart testifies that the young man’s father will eventually be deprived of his land and herd.

Radan dared to say: You said many things that I used, but I did not get the answer to my question. Should I lend my fifty gold coins to my sister’s husband or not? They are my only relatives.
Your sister is a noble woman whom I have a lot of respect for, but in the case of her sister’s husband, she should come and borrow five hundred coins from me, and then I should ask her what she wants to use and if she answers that she wants to be a businessman; A trader like myself and trades in jewelry, furniture and furnishings; I say what do you know about business?

Do you know where you can buy sex at a low price? Do you know where you can sell it at a good price? Will he answer these questions in the affirmative?
Radan replied confidently: No, he can not. He mostly helps me make spears and sometimes I buy a workshop. So I have to tell him that this is not a wise decision at all. A businessman must first learn how to trade.

Ambitions, however valuable, are impractical and will not be given a gold loan; But suppose he says: Yes, I have worked with many businessmen, I know how to travel to Izmir and how to buy handmade rugs for housewives at a low price.
