optimist & pessimist
This is a story of identical twins but with non-identical thinkng.
One was a hope-filled optimist. "Everything is coming up roses!" he would say. The other twin was a sad and hopeless pessimist. He thought that Murphy, as in Murphy's Law, was an optimist.
The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist. He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins' personalities. "On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure." The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.

When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining, "I don't like the color of this computer . I'll bet this calculator will break . . . I don't like the game . . . I know someone who's got a bigger toy car than this . . ."
Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw
their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air.
He was giggling. "You can't fool me! Where there's this much
manure, there's gotta be a pony!"

Some quotes
-“Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.”-
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.”
-
Abraham Lincoln

“Success, real success, in any endeavor demands more from an individual than most people are willing to offer—not more than they are capable of offering.”
-James Roche

Nery Nice story.... Very Natural..

I like the Moral of this story...

"Where there's this much manure, there's gotta be a pony!"

Just see the difference between their thinking...

Thanks for sharing Shakeel!

Very Nice sharing Shakeel Bhai,

You remind me a quote (I dont the Personality right now):

یہ خوف و رجاء پر ھے۔

ھمیں اللہ سے اس قدر خوف میں رہنا چاھیے۔ کہ ایسا لگے۔ کہ اللہ ساری دنیا کو معاف کر دے گا اور لیکن مجھے معاف نہیں کرے گا۔ اور اللہ کی رحمت کی امید اتنی ھونے چاھیے کہ سب لوگ کو سزا ملے تب بھی معاف کر دیا جاوں گا۔ مومن کی زندگی انہیں دو کیفیات کے درمیان رہنے کا نام ھے۔
