Apple Story - یک داستان کوتاه و آموزنده انگلیسی با ترجمه فارسی


 " Apple Story "

A teacher teaching Maths to five-year-old student asked him, "If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have? "Within a few seconds the student replied confidently, "Four!"

The dismayed teacher was expecting an effortless correct answer (three). She was disappointed. "Maybe the child did not listen properly," she thought. She repeated, "My boy, listen carefully. If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?"

The student had seen the disappointment on his teacher's face. He calculated again on his fingers. But within him he was also searching for the answer that will make the teacher happy. His search for the answer was not for the correct one, but the one that will make his teacher happy. This time hesitatingly he replied, "Four…"

The disappointment stayed on the teacher's face. She remembered that this student liked strawberries. She thought maybe he doesn't like apples and that is making him loose focus. This time with an exaggerated excitement and twinkling in her eyes she asked, "If I give you one strawberry and one strawberry and one strawberry, then how many you will have?"

Seeing the teacher happy, the boy calculated on his fingers again. There was no pressure on him, but a little on the teacher. She wanted her new approach to succeed. With a hesitating smile the student enquired, "Three?"

The teacher now had a victorious smile. Her approach had succeeded. She wanted to congratulate herself. But one last thing remained. Once again she asked him, "Now if I give you one apple and one apple and one more apple how many will you have?"
Promptly the student answered, "Four!"

The teacher was aghast. "How my boy, how?" she demanded in a little stern and irritated voice. In a voice that was low and hesitating young student replied, "Because I already have one apple in my bag."

Moral of the Story:
When someone gives you an answer that is different from what you expect, don't think they are wrong. There maybe an angle that you have not understood at all. You will have to listen and understand, but never listen with a predetermined notion.

Jack and the Beanstalk


There was once upon a time a poor widow who had an only son named Jack, and a cow named Milky-White. And all they had to live on was the milk the cow gave every morning, which they carried to the market and sold. But one morning Milky-White gave no milk.

“What shall we do, what shall we do?” said the widow, wringing her hands.

“Cheer up, mother, I’ll go and get work somewhere,” said Jack.

One Apple Leads To His Marriage - یک داستان زیبای انگلیسی

One Apple Leads To His Marriage


One of our pious predecessors, Thabit Bin Nu’man, was hungry and tired as he was passing through a garden that bordered a river. He was so hungry that he could hear his stomach growling, and so his eyes became fixed on the fruits he saw on the various trees of the garden. In a fit of desperation, he forgot himself and extended his hand to an apple that was within reach. He ate half of it and then drank water from the river. But then he became overcome with guilt, despite the fact that he had only eaten because of dire need.

He said to himself, “Woe unto me! How can I eat someone else’s fruits without his permission? I make it binding upon myself not to leave this place until I find the owner of this garden and ask him to forgive me for having eaten one of his apples.“

After a brief search, he found the owner’s house. He knocked on the door and the owner of the garden came out and asked him what he wanted.

Thabit Bin Nu’man said, “I entered your garden that borders the river, and I took this apple and ate half of it. Then I remembered it does not belong to me, and so I ask you now to excuse me for having eaten it and to forgive me for my mistake.“

The man said, “On one condition only I will forgive you for your mistake.“

Thabit Bin Nu’man asked, “And what is that condition?“

He said, “That you marry my daughter.“

Thabit Bin Nu’man said, “I will marry her.“

The man said, “But heed you this; indeed my daughter is blind, she does not see; mute, she does not speak;deaf, she does not hear.“

Thabit Bin Nu’man began to ponder over his situation; a difficult predicament indeed did he find himself in now; what should he do? Not get out of it, thought Thabit, for he realised that to be tested by such a woman, to take care of her, and to serve her, are all better than to eat from the foul matter of the Hellfire as a reward for the apple that he ate. And after all, the days of this world are limited.

And so he accepted the condition to marry the girl, seeking his reward from Allah, Lord of all that exists. He was nonetheless somewhat anxious in the days prior to the marriage.

He thought, “How can I have sexual relations with a woman who neither speaks nor sees nor hears?“

So miserable did he become that he almost wished for the earth to swallow him up before the appointed date.

Yet despite such apprehensions, he placed his complete trust upon Allah and he said, “There is neither might nor power except with Allah. Indeed to Allah do we belong and indeed to Him shall we return.“

On the day of the marriage he saw her for the first time. She stood up before him and said, “Peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.“

When he saw her grace and beauty, he was reminded of what he would see when he would imagine the fair maidens of paradise. After a brief pause he said, “What is this? She indeed speaks, hears and sees.” He then told her what her father said earlier.

She said, “My father has spoken the truth. He said I was mute because I do not speak any forbidden word, and I have never spoken to any man who is not lawful to me! And I am indeed deaf in the sense that I have never sat in a gathering in which there is backbiting, slander, or false and vain speech! And I am indeed blind, in the sense that I have never looked upon a man who is not permissible for me!“

Shopping for a Husband - داستان كوتاه و جالب خريد شوهر - به انگلیسی و فارسی

  داستان كوتاه و جالب خريد شوهر

Shopping for a Husband

A "Husband Shopping Center" was opened where a woman could go to choose from among many men to be her husband. It was laid out in five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended up the floors.

The only rule was that once you opened the door to any floor, you must choose a man from that floor, and if you went up a floor, you couldn't go back down except to leave the place.

So, a couple of girlfriends go to the place to find men.

First floor, the door had a sign saying: "These men have jobs and love kids." The women read the sign and say: "Well that's better than not having jobs, or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up?" So up they go.

Second floor says: "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking." "Hmmm," say the girls, "But, I wonder what's further up?"

Third floor: "These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good looking, love kids and help with the housework." "Wow!" say the women."Very tempting, BUT, there's more further up!" And so again, they go up.

Fourth floor: "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak."

"Oh, mercy me. But just think?! What must be awaiting us further on?!" So up to the fifth floor they go.

The sign on that door said: "This floor is just to prove that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping and have a nice day!"

The letter to God - داستان كوتاه نامه ای به خدا

داستان كوتاه نامه ای به خدا

The letter to God


There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read:

Dear God,
I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money i had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?

Sincerely, Edna

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman.
The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.
Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read:

Dear God,
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it must have been those bastards at the Post Office.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.  Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.
One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other.

"That's a good idea," her mother said.  So they packed a nice basket for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her grandmother.

The king and the flowers


A king had a wonderful talent for growing flowers and was looking for someone to succeed him. He decided he would let the flowers decide so he gave everyone a little seed. The one who would produce the most beautiful flower from the seed would be the next king.

A girl called Serena was overwhelmed by the beauty and determined to grow the most beautiful flower. She planted it in a nice pot, took great care for it, but nothing would grow.

'Why is your pot empty?, he asked.
'Your highness, I did everything to make it grow, but I have failed', she answered.
'No, you didn't fail', he replied.' You see, the seeds I've given out were all roasted, so nothing could come out of them. I have no idea where all these flowers come from. But you have been honest and by being so, have deserved to be my heir. You will be our queen'.

A Short and Beautiful Story - یک داستان کوتاه و زیبا انگلیسی

A Short and Beautiful Story

Here is a short story with a beautiful message...

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, 'Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river.'
The little girl said, 'No, Dad. You hold my hand.' 'What's the difference?' Asked the puzzled father. 'There's a big difference,' replied the little girl.

'If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go.
But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.'

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person who loves you rather than expecting them to hold yours...
This message is too short......but carries a lot of Feelings.

A Little Boy's Temper - داستان انگلیسی با ترجمه

This is a good story that shows what happens when we lose our temper or say things to others that bring forth pain or heartache.

 I hope this message will speak to your heart to always be kind and sensitive to those around you.

A Little Boy's Temper

 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 dwindled down.

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 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.”

داستان كوتاه مرد و پيله كرم ابريشم به فارسی و انگلیسی - Butterfly Story

داستان كوتاه مرد و پيله كرم ابريشم

small crack appeared on a cocoon. A man sat for hours and watched carefully the struggle of the butterfly to get out of that small crack of cocoon.

 Then the butterfly stopped striving. It seemed that she was exhausted and couldn’t go on trying. The man decided to help the poor creature. He widened the crack by scissors. The butterfly came out of cocoon easily, but her body was tiny and her wings were wrinkled.

 The ma continued watching the butterfly. He expected to see her wings become expanded to protect her body. But it didn’t happen! As a matter of fact, the butterfly had to crawl on the ground for the rest of her life, for she could never fly.

 The kind man didn’t realize that God had arranged the limitation of cocoon and also the struggle for butterfly to get out of it, so that a certain fluid could be discharged from her body to enable her to fly afterward.

 Sometimes struggling is the only thing we need to do. If God had provided us with an easy to live without any difficulties then we become paralyzed, couldn’t become strong and could not fly.

طاووس و لاک پشت - The Peacock and the Tortoise

 The Peacock and the Tortoise

طاووس و لاک پشت 

ONCE upon a time a peacock and a tortoise became great friends. The peacock lived on a tree by the banks of the stream in which the tortoise had his home. Everyday, after he had a drink of water, the peacock will dance near the stream to the amusement of his tortoise friend.
One unfortunate day, a bird-catcher caught the peacock and was about to take him away to the market. The unhappy bird begged his captor to allow him to bid his friend, the tortoise good-bye.
The bird-catcher allowed him his request and took him to the tortoise. The tortoise was greatly disturbed to see his friend a captive.
The tortoise asked the bird-catcher to let the peacock go in return for an expensive present. The bird-catcher agreed. The tortoise then, dived into the water and in a few seconds came up with a handsome pearl, to the great astonishment of the bird-catcher. As this was beyond his exceptions, he let the peacock go immediately.
A short time after, the greedy man came back and told the tortoise that he had not paid enough for the release of his friend, and threatened to catch the peacock again unless an exact match of the pearl is given to him. The tortoise, who had already advised his friend, the peacock, to leave the place to a distant jungle upon being set free, was greatly enraged at the greed of this man.
“Well,” said the tortoise, “if you insist on having another pearl like it, give it to me and I will fish you out an exact match for it.” Due to his greed, the bird-catcher gave the pearl to the tortoise, who swam away with it saying, “I am no fool to take one and give two!” The tortoise then disappeared into the water, leaving the bird-catcher without a single pearl.

روزي دانشمندى آزمايش جالبى انجام داد. او يك آكواريوم ساخت و با قرار دادن يک ديوار شيشه‌اى در وسط آكواريوم آن ‌را به دو بخش تقسيم ‌کرد.
در يک بخش، ماهى بزرگى قرار داد و در بخش ديگر ماهى کوچکى که غذاى مورد علاقه ماهى بزرگتر بود..
ماهى کوچک، تنها غذاى ماهى بزرگ بود و دانشمند به او غذاى ديگرى نمى‌داد.
او براى شکار ماهى کوچک، بارها و بارها به سويش حمله برد ولى هر بار با ديوار نامريي كه وجود داشت برخورد مى‌کرد، همان ديوار شيشه‌اى که او را از غذاى مورد علاقه‌اش جدا مى‌کرد…
پس از مدتى، ماهى بزرگ ازحمله و يورش به ماهى کوچک دست برداشت. او باور کرده بود که رفتن به آن سوى آکواريوم و شکار ماهى کوچک، امرى محال و غير ممکن است!
در پايان، دانشمند شيشه ي وسط آکواريوم را برداشت و راه ماهي بزرگ را باز گذاشت.. ولى ديگر هيچگاه ماهى بزرگ به ماهى کوچک حمله نکرد و به آن سوي آكواريوم نيز نرفت!

می‌دانید چرا ؟

ديوار شيشه‌اى ديگر وجود نداشت، اما ماهى بزرگ در ذهنش ديوارى ساخته بود که از ديوار واقعى سخت‌تر و بلند‌تر مى‌نمود و آن ديوار، ديوار بلند باور خود بود ! باوري از جنس محدودیت ! باوري به وجود دیواري بلند و غير قابل عبور ! باوري از ناتوانی خويش …

داستان انگلیسی با ترجمه - My mom only had one eye

خلاصه ای از یک داستان انگلیسی با ترجمه فارسی


My mom only had one eye - مادر من فقط یك چشم داشت

My mom only had one eye.  I hated her… she was such an embarrassment.

مادر من فقط یك چشم داشت . من از اون متنفر بودم … اون همیشه مایه خجالت من بود

She cooked for students & teachers to support the family.

اون برای امرار معاش خانواده برای معلم ها و بچه مدرسه ای ها غذا می پخت

There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me.

یك روز اومده بود  دم در مدرسه كه به من سلام كنه و منو با خود به خونه ببره

I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me?

خیلی خجالت كشیدم . آخه اون چطور تونست این كار رو بامن بكنه ؟

I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.

به روی خودم نیاوردم ، فقط با تنفر بهش یه نگاه كردم وفورا   از اونجا دور شدم

The next day at school one of my classmates said, “EEEE, your mom only has one eye!”

روز بعد یكی از همكلاسی ها منو مسخره كرد و گفت  هووو .. مامان تو فقط یك چشم داره

I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear.

فقط دلم میخواست یك جوری خودم رو گم و گور كنم .  كاش زمین دهن وا میكرد و منو ..كاش مادرم  یه جوری گم و گور میشد…

So I confronted her that day and said, ” If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?!!!”

روز بعد بهش گفتم اگه واقعا میخوای منو شاد و خوشحال كنی چرا نمی میری ؟

My mom did not respond…

اون هیچ جوابی نداد….

I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger.

حتی یك لحظه هم راجع به حرفی كه زدم فكر نكردم ، چون خیلی عصبانی بودم .

I was oblivious to her feelings.

احساسات اون برای من هیچ اهمیتی نداشت

I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.

دلم میخواست از اون خونه برم و دیگه هیچ كاری با اون نداشته باشم

So I studied real hard, got a chance to go to Singapore to study.

سخت درس خوندم و موفق شدم برای ادامه تحصیل به سنگاپور برم

Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own.

اونجا ازدواج كردم ، واسه خودم خونه خریدم ، زن و بچه و زندگی…

I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts

از زندگی ، بچه ها و آسایشی كه داشتم خوشحال بودم

Then one day, my mother came to visit me.

تا اینكه یه روز مادرم اومد به دیدن من

She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.

اون سالها منو ندیده بود و همینطور نوه ها شو

When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited.

وقتی ایستاده بود دم در  بچه ها به اون خندیدند و من سرش داد كشیدم كه چرا خودش رو دعوت كرده كه بیاد اینجا  ، اونم  بی خبر

I screamed at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children!” GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!”

سرش داد زدم  “: چطور جرات كردی بیای به خونه من و بجه ها رو بترسونی؟!”  گم شو از اینجا! همین حالا

And to this, my mother quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,” and she disappeared out of sight.

اون به آرامی جواب داد : ” اوه   خیلی معذرت میخوام مثل اینكه آدرس رو عوضی اومدم ” و بعد فورا رفت واز نظر  ناپدید شد .

One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house in Singapore .

یك روز یك دعوت نامه اومد در خونه من درسنگاپور برای شركت درجشن تجدید دیدار دانش آموزان مدرسه

So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.

ولی من به همسرم به دروغ گفتم كه به یك سفر كاری میرم .

After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.

بعد از مراسم ، رفتم به اون كلبه قدیمی خودمون ؛ البته فقط از روی كنجكاوی .

My neighbors said that she is died.

همسایه ها گفتن كه اون مرده

I did not shed a single tear.

ولی من حتی یك قطره اشك هم نریختم

They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

اونا یك نامه به من دادند كه اون ازشون خواسته بود كه به من بدن

“My dearest son, I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to Singapore and scared your children.

ای عزیزترین پسر من ، من همیشه به فكر تو بوده ام ، منو ببخش كه به خونت تو سنگاپور   اومدم و بچه ها تو ترسوندم ،

I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.

خیلی خوشحال شدم وقتی شنیدم داری میآی اینجا

But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you.

ولی من ممكنه كه نتونم از جام بلند شم كه بیام تورو ببینم

I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.

وقتی داشتی بزرگ میشدی از اینكه دائم باعث خجالت تو شدم خیلی متاسفم

You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye.

آخه میدونی … وقتی تو خیلی كوچیك بودی تو یه تصادف یك چشمت رو از دست دادی

As a mother, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with one eye.

به عنوان یك مادر نمی تونستم تحمل كنم و ببینم كه تو داری بزرگ میشی با یك چشم

So I gave you mine.

بنابراین چشم خودم رو دادم به تو

I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.

برای من اقتخار بود كه پسرم میتونست با اون چشم  به جای من دنیای جدید رو بطور كامل ببینه

With my love to you,

با همه عشق و علاقه من به تو

یک داستان زیبای انگلیسی با ترجمه فارسی


Once upon a time...

There was a rich King who had 4 wives .He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best .He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one dayshe would leave him for another .He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidante and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her  to help him get through the difficult times .The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first  wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her .One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short .He thought of his luxurious life and pondered, "I now have 4 wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone. Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!" replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart. The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?""No!" replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!"His heart sank and turned Cold .He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?""I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!" replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave."Her answer came like a bolt of thunder and the King was devastated .Then a voice called out: "I'll leave with you and follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!

" In Truth, we all have 4 wives in our lives ... Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us when we die. Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others .Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave .And our 1st wife is our Soul ,often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the ego.

However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we Go .So cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now!

 It is your greatest gift to offer the world.

Let it Shine!

Two frogs

Two frogs




A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:

1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day.

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes to kill them.Be careful of what you say.

گروهی از قورباغه ها از بیشه ای عبور می کردند . دو قورباغه از بین آنها درون گودال عمیقی افتادند. وقتی دیگر قورباغه ها دیدند که گودال چقدر عمیق است ،به دو قورباغه گفتند آنها دیگر می میرند. دو قورباغه نصایح آنها را نادیده گرفتند و سعی کردند با تمام توانشان از گودال بیرون بپرند. سرانجام یکی از آنها به آنچه دیگر قورباغه ها می گفتند، اعتنا کرد و دست از تلاش برداشت. به زمین افتاد و مرد. قورباغه دیگر به تلاش ادامه داد تا جایی که توان داشت. بار دیگر قورباغه ها سرش فریاد کشیدند که دست از رنج کشیدن بردارد و بمیرد. او سخت تر شروع به پریدن کرد و سرانجام بیرون آمد. وقتی او از آنجا خارج شد. قورباغه های دیگر به او گفتند :آیا صدای ما را نشنیدی؟ قورباغه به آنها توضیح داد که او ناشنوا است.او فکر کرد که قورباغه ها، تمام مدت او را تشویق می کردند.

این داستان دو درس به ما می آموزد:
1- قدرت زندگی و مرگ در زبان است. یک واژه دلگرم کننده به کسی که غمگین است می تواند باعث پیشرفت او شود و کمک کند در طول روز سرزنده باشند.
2- یک واژه مخرب به کسی که غمگین است می تواند موجب مرگ او شود. پس مراقب آنجه می گویی باش.

How good we are - چقدر شایسته ایم؟

How good we are?

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.

The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation: The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn? The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn."

"Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now." replied boy. The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn.

The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach, Florida." Again the woman answered in the negative.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all, walked over to the boy and said,
"Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

The little boy replied, "No thanks, I was just checking my performance with the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady, I was talking to!"

چقدر شایسته ایم؟

پسرک گفت:"خانم، من این کار را نصف قیمتی که او می گیرد انجام خواهم داد". زن در جوابش گفت که از کار این فرد کاملا راضی است.
پسرک بیشتر اصرار کرد و پیشنهاد داد،" خانم، من پیاده رو و جدول جلوی خانه را هم برایتان جارو می کنم، در این صورت شما در یکشنبه زیباترین چمن را در کل شهر خواهید داشت." مجددا زنان پاسخش منفی بود".
پسرک در حالی که لبخندی بر لب داشت، گوشی را گذاشت. مسئول داروخانه که به صحبت های او گوش داده بود به سمتش رفت و گفت: "پسر...از رفتارت خوشم میاد؛ به خاطر اینکه روحیه خاص و خوبی داری دوست دارم کاری بهت بدم"
پسر جوان جواب داد،" نه ممنون، من فقط داشتم عملکردم رو می سنجیدم، من همون کسی هستم که برای این خانوم کار می کنه".

“Flying Air Boredom”


The roaring engines took us up swiftly. I saw the airport going by us. As we flew even higher I saw the city. The city looked like a city for ants and the cars looked like toys. It reminded me of Legos. It looked so small that I could just step on it and do as much damage as an earthquake. Soon the airplane soared swiftly above the clouds and my ears began popping like popcorn. They felt like a row of firecrackers that were exploding one by one.

It had been an hour, and China was still about a day away.

Now all I saw were clouds and if there weren’t any clouds, all you could see was blue ocean. I began to feel bored. A movie started, but it was the kind of movie that I hated. It was one of those mystery movies with all talk and little action. I knew from that moment that this was going to be a really, really long flight….

“Goodbye Sammy”



Sammy was a normal-sized yellow-orange goldfish. He was always excited to see me.

When I went to the fish bowl, he wasn’t there. I was worried. I thought maybe he was under the seashell, but he wasn’t. When I looked to the side of the bowl, there he was—dead. He had jumped out. Once I saw him, I yelled for my parents.

I started to cry. My parents knew I was very close to Sammy. I was only seven or eight years old. Sammy was my first pet. I talked to him every day. We decided to bury Sammy in the garden. We had a wonderful ceremony. During the ceremony, we put him in a nice box, said a few words and put fish food in his box, so, if he got hungry, he would have something to eat.
