Being Grateful

As two men were walking through a field one day, they spotted an enraged bull. Instantly they darted toward the nearest fence. 

The storming bull followed in hot pursuit, and it was soon apparent they wouldn’t make it. Terrified, the one shouted to the other, “Put up a prayer, John. We’re in for it!” John answered, “I cant’. I never made a public prayer in my life.” “But you must now!” implored his companion. 

“The bull is catching up to us.” “All right,” panted John, “I’ll say the only prayer I know, the one my father used to repeat at the table: ‘O Lord, for what we are about to receive, make us truly thankful.’”

The Story of Diplomatic Reply

The Lion, the king of animals, one day called all his subjects to his court, a vast, smelly cave.
The bear felt nauseated by the smell and held his nose. The lion was offended and gave him a blow that knocked him senseless.
“Does my court smell that bad?” he asked the monkey.
“Not at all, Your Highness,” said the monkey, ingratiatingly. “I would say your court smells like a bouquet of flowers.”
The lion knew this was not possible and knocked him senseless too.
The other animals, including a fox, began to sidle out of the cave but the lion caught the fox’s tail and pulled him back.
“Let us have your opinion,” he said. “Does my court smell?”
“I have a terrible cold, Your Highness,” said the fox, forcing a sneeze. “I cannot smell a thing so I cannot tell you whether your court smells or not.”
The lion liked his clever reply and gave him an important post at his court.

Story of foe

Once there was a bee-keeper who had developed a good apiary. He used to take good care of the bees and they gathered a lot of honey in the hives.

Once the bee-keeper went to the market for some urgent work. The bees had also gone to collect honey and the apiary was left unguarded.

Unfortunately, a thief came there and broke into the apiary. Seeing no one over there, he stole all the honey and made for his house.

When the bee-keeper returned, he was upset to see all the bee-hives empty. Just then the bees returned with more honey in their mouth. Seeing their hives overturned, they assumed the bee-keeper as the robber as he was standing very much there. So, they attacked him and stung him hard.

The bee-keeper cried, “You should have spotted the thief before punishing me.”


Moral of the story- SPOT YOUR FOE BEFORE YOU HIT

Story of Cat scan

One day, Ricky’s dog got seriously ill. So, he took it to a veterinary doctor. The doctor examined the dog and declared it to be dead.

Ricky felt very sad and asked the doctor, “Doctor, are you sure that my dog is dead? Kindly perform some tests and confirm it to me.”

The doctor agreed and asked his assistant to bring a cat. The cat sniffed the dog and went to the other room without any reaction. Thus, it was confirmed that the dog was dead.

When Ricky asked for the bill, the doctor demanded two hundred dollars. When Ricky asked why the bill was so high, the doctor replied, “Cat scan is really very costly.”

Moral of the story- THE CAT SCAN is costly

Story of thief and robber

Once a wolf was roaming about in a field of grass where a flock of sheep came grazing everyday. He was hiding behind a bush. Getting a chance, he carried away a lamb to eat it at a safe place. Unfortunately, a lion came there, snatched the lamb and went to his den to eat it at leisure.

When the lion had walked just a few steps away, the wolf said, “It is down daylight robbery- so unjust for a lion to snatch my morsel from me. It is below his dignity.”

Hearing the wolf’s grumble, the lion laughed and replied, “A thief is questioning a robber- how strange! Did you get this lamb as a gift from a friend? You stole it out of a flock. Was that fair?”
A sin is a sin- whether big or small.


Story of the best detective

Once there was a magpie who realised that one of his most prized coins was missing. So he called the best detectives in the forest: the hare and the mouse.

The mouse was a bit cleverer and more shrewd than the hare; so, following the clues and using his reasoning powers, soon led him to the great labyrinth of tunnels under the forest. On entering, he saw Mr. Mole, but the mouse was very shy, so he said nothing to the mole about why he was there, and he carried on looking for the missing coin.

The hare was also a great detective, and, before long, he too arrived at the labyrinth. He was not a bit shy, and the first thing he did was go and ask the mole if he knew were the coin was. The mole was all too pleased to lead the hare to the coin. That coin had been bothering the mole for months, getting in the way of his tunnelling.

So the hare took the coin and collected his reward. The mouse, who had been watching all this, learned a lot from it. From then on he would never allow shyness to undo all his good work. This approach soon turned him into the best detective in the forest.

Moral of the story

Excess shyness can render some abilities and virtues ineffective

Story of the Power of Charisma

A turkey was chatting with a bull “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. 
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
 Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.
