There are one pig, one sheep and one cow lived in the save place. One day, the shepherd caught the pig and tries to pull him out. Pig was crying, sheep and cow were annoyed by his noise, said: “What is the matter? He often catches us and pull us out, we never cry!”
The pig said: “That’s completely different! He caught you for your wool and your milk only. He caught me for my life!”
(People often cannot understand others in different situations. When you see others frustrated, hurt, painful, please try to care them not laughing at them. )
Depend on ourselves
Baby snail asked:” Mom, why we have to carry this heavy hard big shell since we born?”
Snail Mom: Because we don’t have any bone to support us, so we could only climb but very very slow. Therefore this shell is here to protect us.
Baby snail: but why caterpillar has no bone either, she doesn’t need to carry this shell?
Snail mom: because caterpillar could become butterfly one day, the sky will protect her.
Baby snail: then earthworm has no bone nor became butterfly one day, why he doesn’t need to carry this shell?
Snail Mom: because earthworm could drill, so the earth would protect him.
Baby snail cries: we are such poor creature! There is no sky or earth to protect us.
Snail mom said: Honey, that’s why we have the shell! We don’t depend on the sky or the earth, we depend on ourselves!
Shark and fish
Someone did the experiment before. He put a vicious shark with some fish together in the pond, but using special glass to separate them. At the beginning the shark attacked the transparent glass everyday, he tried to eat those fish but he could not. Every time staff change a new glass when the glass had a small crack, it became harder and stronger material, the shark often attacked till bleed.
Eventually one day, the shark stopped attacking the glass, so the staff removed the glass, but the shark still stayed in his side. So the experiment was off, staff laughed that shark was the most coward creature in the ocean.
But people who hurt in the relationship before all understood why-because the shark doesn’t want to get hurt again.
A small town in France, it said there was miracle spring water could heal many diseases. One day, a retired soldier with one leg only arrived. People said: “poor guy, does he want to beg the God give him another leg again?”
The soldier heard it and answered: “No! I want to beg the God to show me how to move on my life without one leg.”
(Try to accept the fact what you lost, and try to appreciate what you lost. Whatever lost or gaining in our lives, we should try to light up the fire for our future, don’t cry for the pass and try to find out the meaning of the lives.)
An old man was fishing by the river, a kid saw it and came next to him. Old man likes the kid so wants to give the fish to him. The kid said no. old man surprised: “why not?” the kid said: “I want to have your fish rod.”
“what you are going to do with that fish rod?” old man asked.
The kid said: “the fish would be eaten very shortly. If I have the fish rod, I could fish for myself, then I could always have fish.”
(You might think he is a clever kid, but he isn’t . if he only asked for the fish rod, he cannot even have one fish at all. Why? Because he doesn’t know how to fish yet, so only acquire the fish rod is useless. The trick for fishing is the fishing TECHNIQUE, not the fish rod. many people thought they have the fish rod so they have everything. As the kid thought as long as having the fish rod then he could always have fish, employees thought as long as they sit on the director’s office then make them always have money.
