Wisdom From A Laugh 65, 66

  1. 1. Wisdom From A Laugh 65 The Will A widow was at the lawyer’s office to hear the will of her late husband. When she learnt that her late husband had left the major portion of his fortune to his mistress, she was enraged. Filled with anger and hatred, she went to see the stonecutter to have the inscription on her husband’s tombstone changed. “I’m sorry, ma’am,” the stonecutter told her. “I inscribed ‘REST IN PEACE’ based on your orders. It’s too late to change it now.” “Very well,” the fuming widow said grimly, “in that case, just add these words : ‘UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN’”. Reflection * Anger, ill-will and hatred oftentimes drive a person to do the things you least expect ... and these include acts to inflict fear and pain in others. * One who cannot let go of some unfortunate past happenings can react in negative ways ... and these bring suffering to oneself. * When one learns to forgive, one will develop a mind of lightness, peace, happiness and freedom.
  2. 2. Wisdom From A LAugh 66 The College Graduate A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom, and said, “Your first job will be to sweep out the store.” “But I’m a college graduate,” the young man replied indignantly. “Oh I’m sorry. I didn’t realize that,” the manager said. “Here, give me the broom – I’ll show you how.” Reflections * One should never regard certain menial tasks as ‘lowly’ even if one has high academic qualifications. * When one's ego grows big, one will face with negative consequences, for example, unemployment, relationship with others and a greater feeling of frustration more and more often. * One needs to practise simplicity and humility and be willing to do any sort of work as long as the work does not flout moral principles or society's laws. * We are all interdependent on one another ... each type of worker contributes to society to make our lives more comfortable and easy.
