A wandering Sage found himself in the King's court where preparations were underway for a feast. The throne room was being decorated by the Prime Minister and a few of his loyal staff. The Sage wandered in, chuckling to himself as he saw "much ado about nothing". Then he plopped himself down on the King's throne!

At this point, the Prime Minister, who had been doing his best to ignore the man, who was obviously wacky in the PM's view, was incensed!

Approaching the man, the PM yelled, "Who do you think you are to be sitting on that throne? Do you think you are some high official?" "No", the Sage responded. "I am much higher than a minister."

"Higher than any minister is the Prime Minister. I am the Prime Minister! Do you think YOU are the Prime Minister?" "Of course not. You have just said YOU are the Prime Minister. But, dear sir, I am MUCH higher than a Prime Minister."

Higher that the Prime Minister!?" The PM blurted out, now apoplectic and red-faced. "Only the King is higher than the Prime Minister! Do you believe YOU are the KING!?" "Oh no, my dear fellow. I am MUCH higher than the King".

"Higher than the King? Only God is higher than the King, you lout! Do you believe that you are God??" "Absolutely NOT my dear Prime Minister! I am much higher than God".

Higher than GOD? But there is NOTHING higher than God."

Smiling with Love, the Sage said softly, "Quiet right dear boy. I AM that Nothing."

One day, while walking through the wilderness, a man encountered a vicious tiger. He ran for his life, and the tiger gave chase.

The man came to the edge of a cliff, and the tiger was almost upon him. Having no choice, he held on to a vine with both hands and climbed down.

Halfway down the cliff, the man looked up and saw the tiger at the top, baring its fangs. He looked down and saw another tiger at the bottom, waiting for his arrival and roaring at him. He was caught between the two.

Two rats, one white and one black, showed up on the vine above him. As if he didn't have enough to worry about, they started gnawing on the vine.

He knew that as the rats kept gnawing, they would reach a point when the vine would no longer be able to support his weight. It would break and he would fall. He tried to shoo the rats away, but they kept coming back.

At that moment, he noticed a strawberry growing on the face of the cliff, not far away from him. It looked plump and ripe. Holding onto the vine with one hand and reaching out with the other, he plucked it.

With a tiger above, another below, and two rats continuing to gnaw on his vine, the man enjoyed the finest, juiciest, sweetest meal of his life.

Life is 10 percent what you make it, and 90 percent how you take it.

Talent is only the starting point.

Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.

--Irving Berlin
