A wizard was strolling with his three sisters when the most famous warrior of the region came up to him. "I want to marry one of these beautiful girls," he said.

"If one of them gets married, the others are going to think they are ugly. I am looking for a tribe whose warriors can have three wives," answered the wizard as he walked away.

And for many a year he traveled all over the Australian continent but never managed to find such a tribe.

"At least one of us could have been happy," said one of the sisters when they were already old and weary from so much wandering.

"I was wrong, "answered the wizard. "But now it's too late."

And he turned the three sisters into blocks of stone.

Visitors to the Blue Mountains National Park near Sydney can see them - and understand that the happiness of one does not mean the sadness of others.
