Truth and it's value.

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital.

She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me
how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear.

What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said,
"Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said,

"I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well.
Her blood pressure is fine; her blood test just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow."

The grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried.
God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome.
Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302.
No one tells me at all" - TRUE STORY


A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

“Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens."

Then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?"

No response.

So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, Honey, what's for dinner?"

Again he gets no response so,

He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?"

Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?"

James, for the FIFTH time I've said, CHICKEN!"

Conclusion: It’s Quite Humorous, but it depicts the reality.

The problem may not be with the other one as we always think, could be very much within us, however often we end up blaming others!


A wise man once sat in the audience & cracked a joke.

All laughed like crazy. After a moment he cracked the same joke again and a little less people laughed this time.

He cracked the same joke again & again, When there was no laughter in the rowd,
he smiled and said
“When u can't laugh on the same joke again & again,
then why do u keep crying over the same thing again & again.”


Once I noticed a young boy playing in the garden. I was amused at what I saw. At first when he fell down, he looked around to see if anyone was watching him. When he saw that there was no one, he immediately sprang up and continued to play. Later when he fell again he saw that his mother was looking at him in pity, he began crying.

This boy reminded me of Edison. Edison never gave up and he did not bother about failures. As children we all have fallen many times while learning to walk or cycle. Then we spring back with enthusiasm to continue what we are doing. However over the years our conditioning reduces the enthusiasm it takes to achieve our goals. As adults we begin to take our falls and cuts very seriously. We don’t like when people point our mistakes and don’t like to be reminded of our failures.

In fact we get to learn many lessons from our failures. Failures teach us to be gusty and persistent. History is witness to the fact that all successful people have failed their way to success. Education alone is not sufficient. One needs to have entrepreneurial qualities. Failure, taken in the right perspective teaches us just that. Combining Ethics with education and enterprise ensures that success is not short lived. Failure should be followed by reflection on its causes; working on them takes you on your road to SUCCESS!
