< RM > story - Never Give Up!

Never Give Up!

There was this museum laid with beautiful
marble tiles, with a huge marble statue dis-
played in the middle of the lobby. Many peo-
ple came from all over the world just to
admire this beautiful marble statue.
One night, the marble tiles started talking
to the marble statue. Marble tile: "Marble
statue, it's just not fair, it's just not fair! why
does everybody from all over the world come
all the way here just to step on me while
admiring you? Not fair!".
Marble statue: "My dear friend, marble
tile. Do you still remember that we were
actually from the same cave?"
Marble tile: "Yeah! That's why I feel it is
even more unfair. We were born from the
same cave and yet we receive different treat-
ment now. Not fair!" he cried again.
Marble statue: "Then, do you still remem-
ber the day when the designer tried to work
on you, but you resisted the tools?"
Marble tile: "Yes, of course I remember. I
hate that guy! How could he use those tools
on me, it hurt so badly.".
Marble statue: "That's right! He couldn't
work on you at all as you resisted being
worked on."
Marble tile: "So???"
Marble statue: "When he decided to
give up on you and start working on me
instead, I knew at once that I would be
something different after his efforts. I did
not resist his tools, instead I bore all the
painful tools he used on me.."
Marble tile: "Mmmmmm......."
Marble statue: "My friend, there is a
price to everything in life. Since you
decided to give up half way, you can't
blame anybody who steps on you now."
