“I have a shop and I sell walking sticks, and I’m the only one who works here. Even though I’m getting very old, I have never used a walking stick and I don’t own one. I see many old people come and buy walking sticks for themselves, I sympathize with them and I can feel how unpleasant it must be. I have used it several times just to see how it feels, it feels truly unpleasant. It doesn’t feel particularly good to have a lifeless stick as a friend forever. I constantly thank God that I have good health and I have never needed a walking stick. Even though it’s my job to sell these sticks and that’s how I make a living, but I always pray that no one ever needs them. I also want to advise people to use their legs and try to walk as much as possible, and avoid using walking sticks if possible”.
