On Courage 
"So you think I'm courageous?" she asked.
"Yes, I do."
"P erhaps I am. But that's because I've had some inspiring teachers. I'll tell you about one of them. Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at Stanford Hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liza who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her five-year-old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, 'Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza.'
"As the transfusion progressed, he lay in a bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, 'Will I start to die right away?'
"Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give her all his blood.
"Yes, I've learned courage," she added, "because I've had inspiring teachers."

There was a man who remained bachelor his whole life because he was in a search of a perfect woman. When he was 70 somebody asked,"You have been travelling and travelling -from New York to Delhi, from Delhi to Rome, from Rome to London, and you have been searching. Could you not find a perfect woman? Not even one?"

The sad old man replied,"Yes, once I did. One day, long ago, I came across a perfect woman."

The inquirer asked,"Then what happened? Why didn't you get married?"

The old man replied with a lower tone,"What to do? She was looking for the perfect man."

When looking for perfection in others, how blind you are to your own imperfection.

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Once .....

Number 9 slapped number 8 .
Number 8 started crying and asked "  Why did you hit me ..? " 
Number 9 said  " I am bigger than you , that's why "

As soon as 8 listened to 9 ..... He slapped 7. And gave the same reason which 9 gave him . 
Likewise ....

7 slapped 6 .....
6 slapped 5......
5  slapped 4.....
4 slapped 3.....
3 slapped 2.....
2 slapped 1......

And now it was 1's turn ....
He thought whom should he slap .
Only 0 was below him .

But ... He didn't slap 0 .
He very sweetly and lovingly ...... lifted 0 and just put 0 after him .

His power transformed to  10.

I think , You are smart enough to understand what ....is next 
I recently chose a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'
He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?'
'No,' I replied. 'I don't do drugs, either. '
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?'
I said, 'No, my other doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy'
Do you go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City?
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, fishing or relaxing on the beach?'
'No, I don't,' I said. He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said. 'I don't do any of those things.'
Then he looked at me and asked, 'Then why do you give a shit? -
