School of Hard Knocks
There was this museum laid with beautiful marble tiles, with a huge
marble statue displayed in the middle of the lobby. Many people
came from all over the world just to admire this beautiful marble
statue. One night, the marble tiles started talking to the marble
Marble tile: Marble statue, it's just not fair, it's just not fair!
Why does everybody from all over the world come all the way
here just to step on me while admiring you ? Not fair!
Marble statue: My dear friend, marble tile. Do you still remember
that we were actually from the same cave?
Marble tile: Yeah! That's why I feel it is even more unfair. We
were born from the same cave and yet we receive different
treatment now. not fair!"
Marble statue: Then, do you still remember the day when the
designer tried to work on you, but you resisted the tools ?
Marble tile: Yes, of course I remember. I hate that guy ! How
could he use those tools on me, it hurt so badly.
Marble statue: That's right! He couldn't work on you at all as
you resisted being worked on.
Marble tile: So???
Marble statue: When he decided to give up on you and start working
on me instead, I knew at once that I would be something different
after his efforts. I did not resist his tools, instead I bore all
the painful tools he used on me.
Marble tile: Mmmmmm.......
who steps on you now."
The moral of the story is .... ...
It simply means that the more hard knocks you go through in life,
the more you'll learn and put them to use in the future !! Do not
be discouraged by setbacks and failures.
Past is past, you can't change it but it is actually a blessing
in disguise. Past was good, Present is better and the future will
always be the best.
