law and the prophets.
A professor gave a balloon to every student, who had to inflate it, write their name on it and throw it into the hallway. The professor then mixed all the balloons. The students were then given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a hectic search, no one found their own balloon.
At that point, the professor told the students to take the first balloon they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it. Within 5 minutes, everyone had their own balloon.
The professor said to the students: “These balloons are like happiness. We will never find it if everyone is looking for their own. However, if we care about other people’s happiness, we will find ours too!”
