Be a pencil...

I would like to post a story about a small boy and his grandmother, with his grandmother suggesting him to be like a pencil..
This story was discussed by a prof of ours and with due respect and no intention to harm the author of the original story, i would list the qualities of pencil here..

The Grandmother wanted the boy to be like a pencil.. the qualities of it..
1st : You are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and he always guides us according to His will.

2nd: 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.

3rd: 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 us on the road to justice.

4th: 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.

5th: 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.
