Hold the Hand

  •  A Little Girl and her Father were crossing a flimsy bridge.

    The Father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,

    “Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.”

    The Little Girl said, “No, Dad. You hold my hand.”

    “What’s the difference?” asked the puzzled Father.

    “There’s a big difference,” replied the Little Girl.

    “If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. 
    But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”

    “In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, age, caste or creed but in its bond. So, hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours.”

    Never Worry How Many People Dislike You‏

  • A man hated his wife's cat and he decided to get rid of it. He drove 20 blocks away from home and dropped the cat there. The cat was already walking up the driveway when he approached his home.

    The next day, he decided to drop the cat 40 blocks away but the same thing happened. He kept increasing the number of blocks but the cat kept coming home before him.

    At last, he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right and so on until he reached what he thought was a perfect spot and dropped the cat there.

    An hour later. The man calls his wife at home and asked her, "Jen is the cat there?"

    "Yes, why do you ask?" answered the wife.

    Frustrated the man said," Put that damn cat on the phone, I am lost and I need directions to reach home!!!

    Moral: "How much ever we dislike somebody, someday we will need their assistance. So, never worry how many people dislike you".

    Little Things

  • Too often we don't realize what we have until it is gone;
    Too often we wait too late to say "I'm sorry - I was wrong."

    Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones we hold dearest to our hearts;
    And we allow foolish things to tear our lives apart.

    Far too many times we let unimportant things into our minds;
    And then it's usually too late to see what made us blind.

    So be sure that you let people know how much they mean to you;
    Take that time to say the words before your time is through.

    Be sure that you appreciate everything you've got
    And be thankful for the little things in life that mean a lot.

    Past Failures

  • The brightest future will always 
    be based on a forgotten past;

    You can't go forward in life
    until you let go of your past failures.


  • 1. Never explain yourself to any one. Because the person who likes you doesn't need it, and the person who dislikes you won't believe it.

    2. When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choice: Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams.
    Choice is Yours.

    3. Don't make promise when you are in joy. Don't reply when you are sad. Don't take decision when you are angry.
    Think twice, Act wise.

    4. When you keep saying you are busy, then you are never free.
    When you keep saying you have no time, then you will never have time.
    When you keep saying that you will do it tomorrow, then your tomorrow will never come.

    5. We make them cry who care for us. We cry for those who never care for us. And we care for those who will never cry for us. This is the truth of life, its strange but true. Once you realize this, its never too late to change.

    6. Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
    Enjoy every moment of life.

    Very Smart

  • One day in a school in London, a teacher said to a class of 5-year-olds, I'll give 10 pounds to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived."

    An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Patrick."
    The teacher said, "Sorry Paddy, that's not correct."

    Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St. Andrew."
    The teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either."

    Then a Jewish boy put his hand up and said "David",

    The Buddhist boy said "Gautama Buddha" and

    The Muslim boy said "Mohammed".

    They all were not successful.

    Finally, a Gujju boy raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ."

    The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Jignesh, come up here and I'll give you the 10 pounds that I promised."

    As the teacher was giving Jignesh his money, she said, "You know Jignesh, since you're a Hindu Gujarati; I was very surprised you said Jesus Christ."

    Jignesh replied, "Yes. In my heart I knew it was Krishna, but Bijness is Bijness.

    Moral :
    Talk the language which listener (Customer) wants, not that which you know.

    The Carpenter's House

  • An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. They could get by.

    The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end his career.

    When the carpenter finished his work and the builder came to inspect the house, the contractor handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is your house, " he said, "my gift to you."

    What a shock! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. Now he had to live in the home he had built none too well.

    So it is with us. We build our lives in a distracted way, reacting rather than acting, willing to put up less than the best. At important points we do not give the job our best effort. Then with a shock we look at the situation we have created and find that we are now living in the house we have built. If we had realized that we would have done it differently.

    Moral of the Story:
    Think of yourself as the carpenter. Think about your house. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Build wisely. It is the only life you will ever build. Even if you live it for only one day more, that day deserves to be lived graciously and with dignity.

    The plaque on the wall says, "Life is a do-it-yourself project". Your life tomorrow will be the result of your attitudes and the choices you make today.
