nail in the fence

i’d like to thank tasnim arif ( 1 of my good friend ) for sending me this email.
this is a small story which tells how harmful your anger can be.
once said, words never return, so, think twice before saying something to some1 in anger.
please read and enjoy, your comments are welcome ūüôā


There once was a little boy who had a bad temper.

His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he
lost his temper,
 he must hammer a nail into the back  of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence
. Over the next  few weeks, as he learned to control his  anger, the
number of nails hammered daily
 gradually reduced  .

He discovered      it was easier to hold his temper than to drive
those nails into the fence.

¬†Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

 He told his father about it,
 and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each
day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father
that all the nails
were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
 He said,
 You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.
 The fence will never be the same.
 When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

 You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.
¬†It won’t matter how many times you say ‘I’m sorry’, the wound is still there.

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 Friends are very rare jewels.
 indeed They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.
They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to
open their hearts to us..
