    Inheritance

    Diomedes of Greece had two greedy sons. He tells them to race their horses to a far away city to see who will inherit his great wealth. The one whose horse is the slowest will win. The two greedy sons wandered for days wondering how to lose so that they could win! In frustration they consulted a wise man. On hearing his advice, they jumped back on the horses and raced as fast as they could to the city. What was the wise mans advice?
