The Story of Pencil

It`s not my own story. I take it from this site. For me it s a good story, u have to read it in order to know its good 4 u or not. Thanks to Rudy Cayadi for giving me this story.

A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point , he asked : Are you writing a story about what we have done? Is the story about me?”
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.”
Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil, “It didn’t seem very special. But it’s just like any other pencil I’ve ever seen!”
That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which , if you manage to hang on to them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.
First Quality : you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your step. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to his will.
Second Quality : now and then, I have to stop writing and use sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he is much sharper . So you, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person .
Third Quality : the pencil always allow us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did not necessarily a bad things, it helps to keep us on road to justice.
Fourth Quality: 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.
Finally, the pencil’s fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. In just the same way, you should know that every thing you do in life leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action.
