One day, his wife came up to him and asked, “I need you to tell me honestly, do you think I am getting fat?” Sure, his beautiful wife has gained a few pounds but he knew she was not going to like it. So instead of telling her the truth, the man lied. “No darling, you have not gained a single ounce! You are as slim as ever. I am amazed you even asked such an irrational question!” Satisfied with his answer, the wife happily went away. A few days passed and his wife approached him again. “Tell me honestly. Do you think I am going bald? I have been losing so much hair lately!” Sure, the>>>

Curiosity Killed the Cat

Curiosity Killed the Cat Cats are curious little creatures! They love to explore things around them. If they find something strange, they won’t rest until they’ve completely discovered what it is. However, curiosity is not a trait that only cats follow. It is a quality that many of us have. In fact, it is one of those abilities that make us open to learning new things in life.

More Than One Truth

More Than One Truth An elderly man was sitting in his garden when his two grandsons came to sit with him. Their faces showed that they were both obviously angry about something. The old man could not help but ask, “What is the matter, children? Have you two been fighting over something?” His grandson explained, “Grandpa, we were playing outside on the street when I saw a large six that someone had drawn on the ground with chalk. I told my brother but he does not believe me! He keeps saying it’s a nine!” The other grandson cut his brother off and said, “Grandpa, my brother probably does not know how to count because it is CLEARLY a nine! He misread the number and then when I tried to correct him, he called me a liar! ” “YOU are the one who cannot read because it’s really a six!” cried>>>

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand Once upon a time, an old man was walking down a beach when he noticed a little boy throwing something in the sea. He walked up to the boy and inquired, “My dear son, what are you doing here so early in the morning?” without stopping to look at the old man, the boy replied, “Hello sir, I am throwing these jellyfish back in the sea. A bunch of them washed up on the shore last night, they will surely die if the sun comes up and they are not in the water so, I am trying to put them all back in the sea.” The old man smiled at the folly of the little boy. He looked at the number of jellyfish and reasoned, “But this is absurd, there are hundreds of jellyfish here, you possibly cannot throw all of them in water before>>>

Life Is Not a Competition

Life Is Not a Competition Can you name the happiest man on earth? What do you think he owns? You probably think about the luxuries in life. He may be a billionaire with a huge mansion and a fleet of cars. Or you think about a celebrity who is almost as rich and oh-so-famous! Then as kids, we believed that we’d be happy when we came first in class or won a race or got praised in front of everyone. It was all about being the ‘best’ and owning the fanciest, flashiest ‘stuff’. It seems that we have been ingrained with a competitive mindset. Darwin speaks of the ‘survival of the fittest’, doesn’t he? It is our natural instinct to cutthroats and then move forward. This is probably why we have play life like a game. This was the scenario when I entered the halls of my alma mater. The>>>

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life Once upon a time, a man was wandering in a clear, grey forest. He seemed to be lost, searching for something. However, before he could find what he had been looking for, he came across a tiger. The tiger chased the man to the edge of the cliff and the man tipped over. Luckily, he grabbed a vine half way down the fall. He was momentarily safe. Although, when he looked up at the cliff, he didn’t quite feel that way. The tiger stood, bare tooth and gnawing away at the edge in the hopes of catching the man waiting to devour his own hunger. The man gulped down and decided to find a way to get himself out of this predicament by looking for a way further down. Perhaps, he could make his way back to home from somewhere on the>>>

The Wall of Kindness

The Wall of Kindness Walls have always been built to divide and segregate people but did you know that there is a wall that can bring people together as well? Well, the wall of kindness not only brings people together but also helps those in need! The idea behind the wall of kindness is simple and the two-liner motto describes it perfectly, “take if you need” and “leave if you don’t!” You simply leave clothing articles that you do not need for those who require them. It is simply a clean wall in a public place to which hooks are attached. People who wish to donate clothing items can leave them hanging there so anyone can take them. The idea of the wall of kindness was originated in Iran to help the homeless people of Mashhad in surviving the cold winter weather. With the sanctions imposed by the western world>>>
