“How few there are, who have courage to own their faults,or resolution enough to mend them.” ~Benjamin Franklin

Reflections on a lake surface


Nasruddin was ferrying a traveller across a lake. As they spoke on various subjects, Nasruddin made a minor grammatical error. The traveller remarked, “You who wears a turban and calls himself a Mulla—have you ever studied grammar extensively?”

“No,” Nasruddin admitted, “I have not covered that subject in depth.”

“Well then,” the traveller replied,” you have wasted half of your life!”

Several minutes later, Nasruddin turned to the traveller and asked, “Have you ever learned how to swim?”

“No,” the traveller responded.

“Well then,” Nasruddin replied, “you have wasted all your life—for there is a hole in the boat, and we are sinking!”



What we all tend to complain about most in other people are those things we don’t like about ourselves.” – William Wharton

P.S:What if, one could focus all one’s time and energies improving oneself….while allowing others to do the same????

What if, one could focus more on appreciating the many,many wonderful things in oneself and others……?
