The Woodcutter from Gura

A woodcutter from Gura goes to cut wood for his family. As he cuts a branch he is sitting on, a priest warns him that he will fall and die. The woodcutter ignores him. A short time later the branch breaks and he falls. Believing that he is dead he doesn't move. People find his body and carry him home. Along the way he gives them directions to his home. His friends gather and argue about the facts of the woodcutter's death. With so much confusion at home, the woodcutter takes his ax and goes to cut wood. Watching the woodcutter walk away his friends remark "Even in death he only thinks about his family.
