5 Qualities of The Pencil.

A grandmother advises her little grandson, “I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up. It has 5 qualities which, if u manage to hang on to them, will make u a person who is always at peace with the world.”

1st quality: You are capable of great things but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His Will.

2nd Quality : Now & then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little but afterwards, its much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.

3rd Quality : The pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.

4th 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 5th quality : It always leaves a mark. In just the same way, you should know that everything you do in this life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action.

(From the book ‘Like the Flowing River’ by Paul Coelho)

Allah menguji keikhlasan kita bila bersendirian..

Allah memberi kita kedewasaan apabila ditimpa masalah..

Allah melatih kita dengan kesabaran dalam kesakitan..

dan Allah tak pernah mengambil sesuatu yang kita sayang kecuali dengan menggantikan yang lebih baik 🙂
