The Story of Hachiko the Dog



In 1924, Hachikō was brought to Tokyo by his owner, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo. During his owner’s life Hachikō saw him out from the front door and greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return on the usual train one evening. The professor had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage at the university that day. He died and never returned to the train station where his friend was waiting. Hachikō was loyal and every day for the next nine years he waited sitting there amongst the town’s folk.

Gold Coins and a Selfish Man



Sam was a greedy and a selfish man. He always desired to have lots and lots of money and never



hesitated to cheat others to make money. Also, he never wished to share anything with others. He was so selfish that he would like to own everything for himself.


The selfish man used to calculate each and every small aspect. He paid very little amount of wages to his servants. Where ever he went, he calculated a lot to save money by deceiving others. He also told a lot of lies to protect his wealth. Simply, Sam was the antonym for the word; HONESTY.

However, he was taught a nice lesson by his own act.

Apple Tree and the Boy


Once upon a time, there lived a farmer in a village, beside the forest. He had a big garden that had an
old apple tree with other plants, trees and beautiful flowers. When the farmer was a little boy, he spent much of his time playing with the apple tree. However, the old, huge apple tree had stopped bearing fruits a long time ago.

Although it had given the farmer, the choicest of apples, he felt it was of no use now. Therefore, he decided to cut the tree and use its wood to make some new furniture. He felt that since the tree was old and huge, he did not have to cure it, and it would make great furniture. He forgot that as a boy, he had spent his entire childhood, climbing the tree and eating its apples.

Now the apple tree was home to several little animals in the neighborhood. This included squirrels, sparrows and a huge variety of birds and insects. When the boy, who was now a young farmer, took his ax and began chopping the tree, all the little animals came rushing down.

They all began to plead with the farmer, who was

THE BUSINESS EXECUTIVE AND THE MYSTERIOUS OLD MAN


Some say the following story is true. I don't know if it is, but the message & morale it ‘TEACHES’ us are
crystal clear & very real in my opinion. We can ALL ‘Learn’ a Whole Lot from this story of a business man & the mysterious old man he met one day... after all ‘Learn’ is “L" & "Earn”
A Business Executive was ‘Deep I n Debt’ & just couldn’t see a ‘Way Out’. His creditors was ‘Closing-In’ on him, his phone wouldn’t stop ringing with Demands for Payments that he couldn’t ‘Pay Up’. One day, he went to the park & sat on the bench, wondering if Life is still ‘Worth Living’, if he should ‘Give-Up’ & declare ‘Bankruptcy’. That was when an ‘Old Man’ with a kind face walked-over to him & said, oh my, Son,

Apple Tree


A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday.
He climbed to the tree top, ate the apples, and took a nap under the shadow.


He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by, the little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree every day.

One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad.

“Come and play with me”, the tree asked the boy.

“I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees any more” the boy replied.

“I want toys. I need money to buy them.”

Change your World, Change your Words


A blind man sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind,
please help.”

There were only a few coins in the hat.

A woman was walking by. She took a few coins from her pocket and dropped them into the hat. She then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. She put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind man. That afternoon the woman who had changed the sign came to see how things were.

The man recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning?

Accountability


  Even today Red Indian boys go away into solitude to prepare for manhood. One such youth decided to test
himself against a tall mountain. He threw his blanket over his shoulder and set off to climb the peak. When he reached the top, he stood in the rim of the world. His heart swelled with pride. Then he heard a rustle at his feet, and looking down, he saw a rattlesnake. Before he could move, the snake spoke, "I'm starving and freezing to death up here. Put me under your shirt and take me down to the valley."
  "No," said the youth. "I have been warned about you rattlesnakes. If I

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get toknow someone we didn’t already know.

Story Related by a Loving Father


Huwebes ng hapon noon, galing ako sa isang birthday party… pagkatapos tumunga ng dalawang bote ng
beer ay nagpaalam na ako…. mukha kasing uulan, ayokong maabutan ng ulan sa daan. Anak ng pitong kamalasan, tumirik ang kotse ko sa daan… no choice kailangan kong bumaba para ayusin ang makina. Sobrang malas talaga at naiwan ko ang gamit ko, nag uumpisa ng pumatak ang ulan… kung bakit kasi hindi agad sinauli ng kumpare ko na nanghiram ang mga gamit ko sa pag-aayos ng kotse. May natanaw akong isang bahay, nagbakasakali akong tumawag… lumabas ang isang matandang lalaki, siguro mga 70 yrs old na…

“ Magandang hapon po ‘tay, nasiraan po kasi ako eh, di ko po nadala ang gamit ko baka po may lyabe kayo ay pliers jan?” ngumiti sya sa akin, maya maya
