Unperturbed

An old Chinese farmer was walking along the road with a stick across his shoulder. Hanging from the stick was a pot filled with soybean soup. He stumbled and the jar fell off and broke into pieces. The old farmer kept going, unperturbed. A man rushed up and said excited, "Don't you know that your jar broke?" "Yes," the old farmer answered, "I know. I heard it fall." "Why didn't you turn around and do something about it?" "It's broken; the soup is gone -- what can I do about it?" he asked.
