This is a story from the Tales from the Arabian Nights collection.
A hilarious guide to life from a man who has "lived large and fallen hard", offering observations on courage ("Lots of guys brag they'd fight off anything to save their woman. Yeah, right - there is no sense in both us dying"), discipline ("If you've got to get whupped, your father is the man. Mothers don't stop until you're bleeding to death"), money ("Before computers, checks were great...local ones took 14 days to clear"), and much more.

L'origine des "Contes des mille et une nuits" est impossible à déterminer du fait de leur transmission orale non figée par une version écrite. Probablement venus des Indes en passant par l'Iran pour aboutir dans les pays arabes ces contes sont donc le résultat de nombreuses additions de versions différentes. La première traduction française est d'Antoine Galland, suivie de celle de Joseph-Charles Madrus.

I had an uncle who left his hometown and the family business there to become a fine actor. His talent was a minor one, but a pretty one. It lasted for 15 years and was gone. He came home with the ashes of it and died 20 years later, poor and, as it happened, drunk.
After spending all the wealth left to him by his father, Sinbad goes to sea to repair his fortune. He sets ashore on what appears to be an island, but this island proves to be a gigantic sleeping whale on which trees have taken root ever since the world was young. Awakened by a fire kindled by the sailors, the whale dives into the depths, the ship departs without Sinbad, and Sinbad is saved by the grace of Allah.
