STORY 2. THE LION AND THE MOUSE
Once upon a time, there lived a lion in the dense Amazon rainforest. While he was sleeping by resting his big head on his paws, a tiny little mouse unexpectedly crossed by and ran across the lion’s nose in haste. This woke up the lion and he laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny mouse to kill her.
The poor mouse begged the lion to spare her this time and she would pay him back on some other day. Hearing this, the lion was amused and wondered how such a tiny creature could ever help him. But he was in a good mood and with his generosity he finally let the mouse go.
A few days later, a hunter set a trap for the lion while the big animal was stalking for prey in the forest. Caught in the toils of a hunter’s net, the lion found it difficult to free himself and roared in anger.
As the mouse was passing by, she heard the roar and found the lion struggling hard to free himself from the hunter’s net. The little creature quickly ran towards the lion’s trap that bound him and gnawed the net with her sharp teeth until the net tore apart. Slowly she made a big hole in the net and soon the lion was able to free himself from the hunter’s trap.
The lion thanked the little mouse for her help and the mouse reminded him that she had finally repaid the lion for sparing her life before. Thereafter, the lion and the mouse became good friends and lived happily in the forest.
Moral of the story:
Love and kindness are never wasted. You can accomplish by kindness, which you cannot by force
STORY 3. THE STUBBORN PAINTER
One winter morning, the roaring north wind blew the sunrays slowly, and the fallen leaves of trees were crushed and rolled by the passing vehicles. The cold wind made the people wrap themselves in their coats. I was about to retract my head into my collar and I heard a timid voice, “Sir, do you want to buy a painting?” A middle-aged man appeared in from of me. He had a beard like autumn grass, and he was carrying a large bag having many packages. Above this, it was a shabby picture clip. His body was not that strong to bear the burden of the bag. I am saying this because he was pale and thin and I don't know where his left leg has lost. He had to rely on crutches to keep his balance.
Walking on the road in a small town, you will often encounter a pair of begging hands stubbornly blocking your way that seems that they won’t let you go until they achieve their goal. Let your sympathy overflow gradually and after you give it willingly or unwillingly until you become numb. The middle-aged man did not reduce himself to begging for a living. I was a little surprised. I said, “ Okay, !”. The man was very surprised. He put down the luggage on the floor with great difficulty and took his pants with his hand. I saw that the pants were tied to his body with a nylon rope. He sat on the luggage, put the crutches aside, put the easel on the healthy leg, and said, “ I will draw a sketch for you, and it will be fine in a while.” Sre enough, the painting was completed in a while, with a few simple strokes. The popular faces of the characters in the painting do not highlight my characteristics. Although I don’t understand wanting, and said, “start I am not bagging.” After he laughed, the laughter passed through the beard and turned into vapour, flying in the air. He was on the road again, limping into the stretched street with his luggage on his back, holding a can, ad melted into the depression of early winter. Looking at his back, a word suddenly came to my mind: struggle.
I haven’t asked him about his life experience I don’t know what kind of humiliation and depression this seven-foot body has experienced, but his spirit of not bowing to life deeply shocked me. This is real life, a complete and noble life. Real life doesn't care about the mercy of fate, no matter when and where it carries the true colours of life and the nobility of the soul, and doesn’t allow impiety. The more frustrated, the more courageous; the more difficult the more struggling. And the humble life will emit dazzling brilliance.
Moral of this story:
No matter what, life is based on us. We should face everything with or heads-up. Once we bend down, it proves that we are surrendering to fate, and our dignity will become insignificant. As we bend down. Real life doesn’t allow impiety, the noble soul always retains the dignity, we should be courageous, struggle hard, and fight destiny.
STORY 4. THE FOX AND THE STORK
A selfish fox once invited a stork to dinner at his home in a hollow tree. That evening, the stork flew to the fox’s home and knocked on the door with her long beak. The fox opened the door and said, “Please come in and share my food.”
The stork was invited to sit down at the table. She was very hungry and the food smelled delicious! The fox served soup in shallow bowls and he licked up all his soup very quickly. However, the stork could not have any of it as the bowl was too shallow for her long beak. The poor stork just smiled politely and stayed hungry.
The selfish fox asked, “Stork, why haven’t you taken your soup? Don’t you like it?” The stork replied, “It was very kind of you to invite me for dinner. Tomorrow evening, please join me for dinner at my home.”
The next day, when the fox arrived at the stork’s home, he saw that they were also having soup for dinner. This time the soup was served in tall jugs. The stork drank the soup easily but the fox could not reach inside the tall jug. This time it was his turn to go hungry.

They all were looking at the king expectantly as he went around checking the pots slowly. All the pots had colourful blossoming flowers and the excitement of the children filled the air. But the king was not that cheerful.
Suddenly, the king saw Kashi, who was also not very cheerful. He had an empty flower pot in his hand and tears in his eyes. The king called him and asked, “Why are you holding an empty flower pot?”
Kashi was sobbing as he remembered how well he took care of the seeds and yet, they did not even sprout.
Unexpectedly, the king lifted little Kashi in his arms and exclaimed, “You are the one I am looking for!”
All the people were surprised and asked the king why he chose Kashi.
The king replied, “All the seeds that I had distributed were boiled in the beginning so there was no chance that they could sprout and blossom.”
