Hearing this, the father got off the donkey and put his son on the donkey instead of him. As he was walking, another man passed by saying " How...

A long time ago, there lived a rich man who had a shop. Every month he would send money to his parents, and even presents on holidays. However, no matter how much they asked him to come visit, he never did. He was always so busy with working and  seeing his friends, and so he never had time to come home.

1. Simple things can make us happy! A sunny day, a cloud shaped like Mickey Mouse, yummy snack, funny movie, and playing in the snow! To be happy we don't need anything too complicated. 2. Spend time doing things we love. Why not? There is only one life and we should enjoy it. Children draw beautiful pictures, dance and watch cartoons. We should spend less time worrying about tomorrow and more time enjoying today,...

Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.”

Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.”

I try not to be biased, but I had my doubts about hiring Stevie. His placement counselor assured me that he would be a good, reliable busboy. But I had never had a mentally handicapped employee and wasn't sure I wanted one.

I wasn't sure how my customers would react to Stevie. He was short, a little dumpy with the smooth facial features and thick-tongued speech of Downs Syndrome.

I wasn't worried about most of my trucker...

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. ... In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”
 
And so different people will notice different things in the same situation. One person will notice op...

Fear is one of the universal emotions. It underlies a lot of our behavior and it is very useful in allowing us to survive. Sometimes, though, it becomes a hindrance to our success.

One of our most common fears is the fear of rejection, be that rejection by a potential date, employer, or a graduate program we apply to. You know what is the worse thing you can do? Give into your fear and do nothing. It is better to try and...
