Learn, Relax and Enjoy - 19

Two frogs

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Moral: 1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone
                who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.
            2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time to encourage another.

What an age we are in .
We have  taller buildings but shorts tempers. 
Wider freeways but narrower viewpoints. 
We spend more but save less. 
We buy more but enjoy less. 
We have bigger houses but smaller families.
More conveniences but less time.
We have more degrees but less common sense 
More knowledge but less judgments 
More medicines but less well being.
We spend too much, laugh too little driver too fast, get angry too quickly, stay up too lake , get up too tired read too rarely, watch too much of TV and pray too little. 
We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom and lie too often. 
We have learned how to make a living but not a life, we have add ed years to life, not life to years.
We have been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbors, We have conquers outer space but not inner space. 
We have done large thinks but better things, we have spirit the atom but not better things. We write more but accomplish less. Plan more but accomplish less.
We have learnt to rush but not to wait, we have hinges income but lower morals, more food but less appetite More acquaintances but fewer friends. 
We make more computers hold more information than  even before but have less communications  
We have become large on quality but short on quality the we live in a time of words food and slow digestions tall men and short character, sleep profits and shallow relationships. 
We are in the time of world peace and domestic warfare More desire and less fun : more varieties of food but less nutrition 
These are the days of two incomes but more devices, of fancies house but broken homes, These are days of quick trips, throwaway morality and pills that do everything from cheer to silence.
THINK – are we becoming modern or just characterless.

I am his tailor             

 A doctor diagnosed a patient’s rundown condition as too much worry over money matters. “Relax”, he ordered, just two weeks ago I had  another man here in a state of fear and anxiety because he was unable to pay his tailor’s bills. 
I told  him to forget about paying his tailor’s bills . 
I told him to... 
I “know “, said the patient looking dejected,  
“I am his tailor”.

Some men are born great; some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them   --- Shakespeare

To gossip is a fault; To libel is a crime; To slander is a sin. 

Who brought you here?

A chief guest spoke for one hour and still he had  the desire to speak for some more time. 

To his surprise he found a person taking out a pistol and loading bullets. Anticipating some danger he looked at him and said : “Please don’t shoot me. I will finish in a minute.”

The one with the pistol said: “ Don’t worry. You can speak as long as you want. I will not shoot you. I will shoot the person who brought you here”.
