    It teaches a great Lesson and I hope you read and enjoy

    There was a boy who was always losing his temper. His father gave him a bag full of nails and said to him, My son, I want you to hammer a nail into our garden fence every time you need to direct your anger against something and you lose your temper.

    So the son started to follow his fathers advice. On the first day he hammered in 37 nails, but getting the nails into the fence was not easy, so he started trying to control himself when he got . As the days went by, he was hammering in less nails, and within weeks he was able to control himself and was able to refrain from getting and from hammering nails. He came to his father and told him what he had achieved. His father was with his efforts and said to him: But now, my son, you have to take out a nail for every day that you do not get .

    The son started to take out the nails for each day that he did not get , until there were no nails left in the fence.

    He came to his father and told him what he had achieved. His father took him to the fence and said, My son, you have done well, but look at these holes in the fence. This fence will never be the same again. Then he added: When you say things in a state of anger, they leave marks like these holes on the hearts of others. You can stab a person and withdraw the knife but it doesnt matter how many times you say Im sorry, because the wound will remain.

    The Hare and the Tortoise


    The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals
    I have never yet been beaten, said he, when I put forth my full speed.

    I challenge any one here to race with me
    The Tortoise said quietly, I accept your challenge

    That is a good joke, said the Hare
    I could dance round you all the way.

    Keep your boasting till youve beaten,
    answered the Tortoise. Shall we race

    So a course was fixed and a start was made
    The Hare darted almost out of sight at once
    but soon stopped and to show his contempt
    for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap.

    The Tortoise plodded on and plodded on
    and when the Hare awoke from his nap
    he saw the Tortoise just near the winning-post
    and could not run up in time to save the race
    Then said the Tortoise: Plodding wins the race

    A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree.
    ... ...
    A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday.
    ...
    He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow...
    ... ...
    He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him.
    ...
    Time went by...the little boy had grown up,
    ... ...
    And he no longer played around the tree every day.
    ...
    One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad.
    ... ...!
    "Come and play with me, the tree asked the boy.
    : ...
    "I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees any more"
    The boy replied.
    : ...
    "I want toys. I need money to buy them."
    ...
    "Sorry, but I do not have money...
    : !!!
    But you can pick all my apples and sell them.
    So, you will have money.
    ...
    " The boy was so excited.
    ...
    He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily.
    ...
    The boy never came back after he picked the apples.
    ...
    The tree was sad.
    ...
    One day, the boy who now turned into a man returned
    ...!!!
    And the tree was excited "Come and play with me" the tree said.
    : ...
    "I do not have time to play. I have to work for my family.
    :
    ...
    We need a house for shelter.
    ...
    Can you help me?
    ǿ
    " Sorry,
    !!!
    But I do not have any house. But you can chop off my branches
    To build your house.
    ...
    " So the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily.
    ...
    The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since then.
    ... ...
    The tree was again lonely and sad.
    ...
    One hot summer day,
    ...
    The man returned and the tree was delighted.
    ....
    "Come and play with me!" the tree said.
    : ...
    "I am getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself.
    ... ...
    Can you give me a boat?"
    Said the man.
    : ...
    "Use my trunk to build your boat.
    You can sail far away and be happy.
    ... ... ...
    " So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat.
    !!!
    He went sailing and never showed up for a long time.
    ........................
    Finally, the man returned after many years.
    ........
    "Sorry, my boy. But I do not have anything for you anymore.
    : ...
    No more apples for you...
    " The tree said.
    : ...
    "No problem, I do not have any teeth to bite
    " The man replied.
    : ...
    "No more trunk for you to climb on"
    ...
    "I am too old for that now" the man said.
    !!!
    "I really cannot give you anything...
    : ...
    The only thing left is my dying root,
    The tree said with tears.
    ... ...
    "I do not need much now, just a place to rest.
    : ...
    I am tired after all these years" the man replied.
    ...
    "Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest,
    : ...
    Come, come sit down with me and rest.
    ... ...
    " The man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears...
    ...
    This is you and the tree is your parent. !!!!!

    The Crow and the Pitcher


    A Crow, half-dead with thirst, came upon a Pitcher which had once
    been full of water; but when the Crow put its beak into the mouth
    of the Pitcher he found that only very little water was left in it,

    and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it.
    He tried, and he tried, but at last had to give up in despair.

    Then a thought came to him, and he took a pebble and
    dropped it into the Pitcher.

    Then he took another pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher.
    Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.
    Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.
    Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.
    Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher.
    At last, at last, he saw the water mount up near him, and after
    casting in a few more pebbles he was able to quench his thirst
    and save his life.
    Little by little does the trick.

    The Wind and the Sun

    The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger

    Suddenly they saw a traveller coming down the road

    and the Sun said: I see a way to decide our dispute

    Whichever of us can cause that traveller to take off his cloak

    shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin

    So the Sun retired behind a cloud

    and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveller

    But the harder he blew the more closely

    did the traveller             ap his cloak round him

    till at last the Wind had to give up in despair

    Then the Sun came out and shone in all his

    glory upon the traveller, who soon found it

    too hot to walk with his cloak on.

    Kindness effects more than severity

    The Fox and the Grapes

    One hot summers day a Fox was strolling through
    an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes
    just ripening on a vine which had been trained
    over a lofty branch. Just the thing
    to quench my thirst, quoth he.
    Drawing back a few paces, he took a run
    and a jump and just missed the bunch

    Turning round again with a One, Two, Three
    he jumped up, but with no greater success
    Again and again he tried
    after the tempting morsel
    but at last had to give it up,
    and walked away with his nose
    in the air, saying
    I am sure they are sour

    It is easy to despise what you cannot get

    As the taxi came to a screeching halt at a traffic light
    I asked the driver
    "Do you agree that 'Time is money'?"
    "Well,it's a very common saying
    Who will care so much about that?
    "the driver answered
    "Look,the digits in the meter are
    still running when the car has stopped,"
    I pointed at the meter
    "Oh.yes.You've got a point here
    In this case,time is money for both of us,"
    added the driver
