Then the Angel stepped aside from the road, and left free for him the path in which John was already standing awaiting his brother. And from thenceforth Athanasius yielded no more to the wiles of the Devil who had strewn the gold in his path, and he understood that not by gold, but by good works only, could he render service to God and his fellow-man.

Two Pilgrims, Leo Tolstoy 1885
It is about two ffoolish boys who have their own opinions about what an inscription means. It is when the brothers unite, because that's when the actions stop and then in begins to resolve. The theme of the story is that no matter how we are different frome each other, how mature and immature we are in our decisions, we must decide what is right for us and what makes us happy. Aleksander Pushkin and Lev Tolstoy. Pakhom's dream of himself perishing was essentially his actual fate.
Once upon a time, in the days long since gone by, there dwelt at Jerusalem two brothers; the name of the elder was Athanasius, the name of the younger John. They dwelt on a hill not far from the town, and lived upon what people gave to them. Every day the brothers went out to work. They worked not for themselves, but for the poor. Wherever the overworked, the sick were to be found—wherever there were widows and orphans, thither went the brothers, and there they worked and spent their time, taking no payment.
