From Doegoel and Digil's Conversation

Digil and Doegoel is a famous story about a father and his son who wanted to take his donkey to the market to sell it. In that story, upon hearing negative comments of the passersby, the father and son took turns in riding the donkey, they even went as far as to carry the donkey on their backs until they were exhausted. At the end of the story, the father told his son about a wisdom written in a religious book. Digil then asked Doegoel's opinion about what the father was trying to say. Doegoel then replied; “If we believed we were doing something good, then we don't need to care about what other people say.”
