Peace of Mind

One day a farmer, walking down the street in a small town came across a large stone in the middle of his path. The farmer complained: “Who could be so careless as to leave such a big stone on the road? Why does someone not remove it?” He went away complaining.

The next day, the same thing happened with a milkman. He too went away grumbling but left the stone as it was.

Then one day, a student came across the stone. Worried that someone may fall over it and hurt himself, he decided to push it aside. He pushed long and hard all by himself and eventually managed to remove the stone from the path. He came back and noticed a piece of paper where the stone was kept.

He picked the paper and opened it. Inside was written, “You are the true wealth of this nation.”

There are two kinds of people

Talkers and doers.

Talkers merely talk, while doers do.

The moral of this story is that if you don’t want to get involved you have no right to criticise. Become the change you wish to see in this world.

Service to society is the rent we pay for the space we occupy on this earth.
