The Foolish Donkey
A salt dealer used to carry a salt bag on his donkey market every day.
On the way, they had to cross a stream. One day the donkey suddenly drowned in the stream and the salt bag fell into the water as well. The salt dissolves in water and therefore the bag becomes too light to carry. The ass is happy.
Then the donkey started playing the same technique every day.The salt seller understood the technique and decided to teach it a lesson. The next day he put a cotton bag on his donkey.Again it did the same trick hoping that the cotton bag would still lighten up.
But the damp cotton becomes too heavy to carry and the donkey is damaged. This is a lesson learned. After this day it no longer played the trick, and the seller was pleased.
A Best Friend
A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some points of the trip, there was an argument between them and one friend hit another.
The one who hit him was injured, but wrote nothing but sand;
“Today my best friend hit me in the face. ”
They continued walking until they found the oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The victim was stabbed and drowned, but the friend saved him. After he was healed from near drowning, he wrote on a stone;
“Today, my best friend saved my life.”
Asked the friend who had been slapped and saved his best friend;
“After I hit you, you wrote in the sand and now, you wrote in a stone, why?”
Another friend replied;
“When someone hurts us, we should write it down in the sand where the winds of forgiveness can wipe it out. However, when someone does something good for us, we must carve it into the rock where no wind can ever wipe it. ‘
Don’t value the things in your life. But who do you value in your life?
