USED vs. LOVED
While a man was polishing his new car his 6 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger the man took the child´s hand and hit it many times;
not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw his father...
with painful eyes he asked ´Dad when will my fingers grow back?´
The man was so hurt and speechless;
he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions.....
sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;
the child had written ´LOVE YOU DAD´.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits;
choose the latter to have a beautiful lovely life.....
Things are to be used and people are to be loved.
But the problem in today´s world is that
People are used and things are loved.
In this year let´s be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used
but People are to be loved.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions...
How times changed
The famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a picture of him sleeping in the street under his famous bronze statue and wrote sadly (How times changed).
The reason he wrote the sentence was not only because he was old but because when the governor of California opened the hotel with the statue in front of him. The hotel officials told Arnold: ´At any time you can come and have a room reserved in your name´. When Arnold left judgment and went to the hotel the administration refused to give him a room arguing that the hotel was fully booked.
He brought a cover and slept under the statue and asked people to imagine it. He wants to convey a message that when he was in a position they were praising him and when he lost this position they forgot and did not fulfill their promise to him. Yes times have changed. Do not trust your position or your owner or your power or your intelligence. All of this will not last.
