A SENSE OF A GOOSE !!!


GOOSE STORY!!!

 

Next autumn, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way.

 

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following.

 

By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

 

People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

 

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

 

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are heading the same way we are.

 

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.

 

It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or with geese flying south.

 

Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

 

What message do we give when we honk from behind?

 

Finally – and this is important – when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of the formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection.

 

They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies; and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their own group.

 

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.

Obedient Wife !!!


The Obedient Wife!!!

There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real “miser” when it came to his money. 

Just before he died, he said to his wife…

“When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.”

And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him. 

Well, he died.

He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there – dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.

When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, “Wait just a moment!” She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket.

Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away.

So her friend said,

“Girl, I know you were not a fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband.”

The loyal wife replied,

“Listen, I’m a Christian; I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket with him. “

“You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?”

“I sure did,” said the wife.

“I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a check…. If he can cash it, then he can spend it.”

Send this to every clever female you know, and to every man who thinks they are smarter than woman!!!

The Selfish Man!!!


THE SELFISH MAN

 

Once upon a time, there was a selfish man. He liked everything to be his own.

 

He could not share his belongings with anyone, not even his friends or the poor.

 

One day, the man lost thirty gold coins. He went to his friend’s house and told him how he lost his gold coins.

 

His friend was a kind man.

 

As his friend’s daughter was coming from an errand she found thirty gold coins, when she arrived home, she told her father what she had found.

 

The girl’s father told her that the gold coins belong to his friend and he sent for him.

 

When the selfish man arrived, he told him how his daughter had found his thirty gold coins and handed then to him.

 

After counting the gold coins the man said that ten of them was missing and had been taken by the girl as he had forty gold coins.

 

He further commented that he will recover the remaining amount from him.

 

But the girl’s father refused.

 

The man left the gold coins and went to the court and informed the judge there about what had taken place between him and the girl’s father.

 

The judge sent for the girl and her father, and when they arrived asked the girl how many gold coins she found.

 

She replied thirty gold coins. The Judge that asked the selfish man how many gold coins he loosed and he answered forty gold coins.

 

The judge then told the man that the gold coins did not belong to him because the girl found thirty and not forty as he claimed to have lost and then told the girl to take the gold coins and that if anybody is looking for them he will send for the girl.

 

The judge told the man that if anybody reports that they have found forty gold coins he will send for him.

 

It was then that the man confessed that he lied and that he lost thirty gold coins but the judge did not listen to him.

 

This story teaches us to be always honest as dishonest never pays.

THE THREE WISE MEN!!!

 

 

One day some wise men, who were going about the country trying to find answers to some of the great questions of their time, came to Nasreddin’s district and asked to see the wisest man in the place.

 

Nasreddin was brought forward and a big crowd gathered to listen.

 

The first wise man began by asking, “Where is the exact center of the world?”

 

“It is under my right heel,” answered Nasreddin.

 

“How can you prove that?” asked the first wise man.

 

“If you don’t believe me,” answered Nasreddin, “measure and see.”

 

The first wise man had nothing to answer to that, so the second wise man asked his question.

 

“How many stars are there in the sky?” he said.

 

“As many as there are hairs on my donkey,” answered Nasreddin.

 

“What proof have you got of that?” asked the second wise man.

 

“If you don’t believe me,” answered Nasreddin, “count the hairs on my donkey and you will see.”

 

“That’s foolish talk,” said the other.

 

“How can one count the hairs on a donkey?”

 

“Well,” answered Nasreddin, “How can one count the stars in the sky?  If one is foolish talk, so is the other.”

 

The second wise man was silent.

 

The third wise man was becoming annoyed with Nasreddin and his answers, so he said, “You seem to know a lot about your donkey, so can you tell me how many hairs there are in its tail?”

 

“Yes,” answered Nasreddin.

 

“There are exactly as many hairs in its tail as there are in your beard.”

 

“How can you prove that?” said the other.

 

“I can prove it very easily,” answered Nasreddin.

 

“You can pull one hair out of my donkey’s tail for every one I pull out of your beard. If the hairs on my donkey’s tail do not come to an end at exactly the same time as the hairs in your beard, I will admit that I was wrong.”

 

Of course, the third wise man was not willing to do this, so the crowd declared Nasreddin the winner of the day’s arguments.

Trapping the Trapper


Think Out Of The Box!!!!

Many years ago in a small Indian village,

A farmer had the misfortune Of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender.

The Moneylender , who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer’s beautiful Daughter. So he proposed a bargain.

He said he would forgo the farmer’s debt if he could marry his Daughter. Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the Proposal. 

So the cunning money-lender suggested that they let Providence decide the matter.

He told them that he would put a black Pebble and a white pebble into an empty money bag. Then the girl would Have to pick one pebble from the bag.

1) If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven.

2) If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven.

3) But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into Jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer’s field. As They talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he Picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two Black pebbles and put  them into the bag.

He then asked the girl to pick A pebble from the bag.

Now, imagine that you were standing in the field. What would you have Done if you were the girl? If you had to advise her, what would you Have told her?

Careful analysis would produce three possibilities:

1. The girl should refuse to take a pebble.

2. The girl should show that there were two black pebbles in the bag And expose the money-lender as a cheat.

3. The girl should pick a black pebble and sacrifice herself in order To save her father from his debt and imprisonment.

Take a moment to ponder over the story. The above story is used with The hope that it will make us appreciate the difference between lateral And logical thinking.

The girl’s dilemma cannot be solved with Traditional logical thinking. Think of the consequences if she chooses

The above logical answers.

What would you recommend to the Girl to do?

Well, here is what she did ….

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without Looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path Where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.

“Oh, how clumsy of me,” she said. “But never mind, if you look into the Bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I Picked.”

Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had Picked the white one. And since the money-lender dared not admit his Dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into An extremely advantageous one.

MORAL OF THE STORY:

Most complex problems do have a solution. It is only that we don’t Attempt to think.
