A teacher is telling her students the importance of making others glad."Now, children,"she says"Did you make someone else glad?"
"Please, teacher,"says a small boy,"I made someone glad yesterday."
"Well done. Who was that?"The teacher says."My granny."The boy says."Good boy. Now tell us how you made your grandmother glad."The teacher says."I went to see her yesterday, and stayed with her for three hours. Then I said to her,'Granny, I'm going home.'And she said,"well. I'm glad!”
A man walking in the night slipped from a rock. Afraid that he would fall down thousands of feet, because he knew that place was a very deep valley, he took hold of a branch that was hanging over the rock. In the night all he couls see was a bottomless abyss. He shouted, his own shout reflected back--there was nobody to hear.
You can imagine that man and his whole night of scare. Every moment there was death, his hands were becoming cold, he was losing his grip...... and as the sun came out he looked down and he laughed. There was no abyss. Just six inches down there was a rock. He could have rested the whole night, slept well---the rock was big enough---but the whole night was anightmare.
Fear is only six inches deep. Now it is up to you whether you want to go on cling to the branch and turn your life into a nightmare, or whether you would love to leave the branch and stand on your feet.
There is nothing to fear.
A Cat Is Fishing
A cat goes to a river every day. He wants to go fishing. But he can’t catch any fish.
One day, he goes to the river as usual. Suddenly a fish comes out. He catches the fish. He is very happy. He forgets to put the fish in the basket. He dances and sings. He shouts, “I have a fish! I have a fish!” All his friends come to see him.
“Where is your fish? Let us have a look at it. ” his friends say.
“It’s there, near the bank.” the cat answers. But he can’t find the fish. When he sings and dances, the fish jumps back into the river.
