The story of the Pencil !!!
I have taken this post from a blogger OutOfReach. I hope you don't mind :P Why would you? hehe...
It was taken by her from Paulo coelho's book "Like the Flowing River"
A pencil has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world!! (i know its just a pencil! but hey you should read the rest)
" First quality : you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. we call it GOD, and he always guide us according to his will. ( I believe its true..)
"Second quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpener.That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he's much sharper, so you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person. ( so true what doesn't kill you makes you stronger..)
"Third quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes,this means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.
"Fourth quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. so always pay attention to what is happening inside you"
"Finally, the pencil's fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. In just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action."
The post is just amazing and I relate it to my life at present. So just wanted to share....
