The Gate

For a long time Edison's guests wondered why the gate to his garden was so difficult to open. A friend of his said, “ The gate to your garden is so heavy that I have to use all my strength to open it. I cannot understand the reason. You are such a brilliant man. I am sure you could have invented something better.”

“The gate seems to be quite all right,” Edison answered with a smile. “In fact, it’s quite a brilliant invention.”

“You are joking, aren't you?”

“Not a bit. The gate is connected with a pump. Everybody who comes in pumps twenty liters of water out of the well.”
