King Solomon

Source: Qisas.com

There is Jewish folktale about King Solomon who commissioned a jeweler to make him a very special ring. The king ordered an inscription on the ring, which would be sure to convert his sadness and depression to happiness every time he read the words.

After much time, thought and deliberation, the royal jeweler presented his finished product to the king. Upon reading the inscription, King Solomon was so impressed that he directed his treasurer to pay the jeweler twice the agreed upon price.

The inscription read: “This too shall pass.”
