I was happy. My girlfriend and I were dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. My parents helped us in every way; my friends encouraged me, and my girlfriend? She was a dream! There was only one thing bothering me, quite much indeed, and that was my mother-in-law to be.

She was a career woman, smart, but most of all beautiful and sexy, who sometimes flirted over me, which made me feel uncomfortable.One day she called me and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitati...

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long co...

we have all heard this story one way or another, in different versions... still, I love it everytime someone sends it for me..

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He s...

A man was selling oranges in the middle of a
road. He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers.
He put some signs along the road and spent the whole
day praising the flavor of his wares.
Everyone bought from him and the man thrived.
With the money he placed more signs on the road and
began to sell more fruit. Business was growing fast
when one day his son - who was educated and had
studied in a big city - asked him:
- Father, don't you know that the world is going
through ...

Malba Tahan illustrates the dangers of words: a
woman said so often that her neighbor was a thief that
the young man was finally arrested. Some days later,
they discovered that he was innocent and set him free.
Then he sued the woman.
- Comments are not so serious - she said to the
judge.
- Granted - answered the magistrate. - When you
get back home today, write down everything bad you
said about the young man, then tear up the paper and
throw the bits away as you walk...

It takes years to build trust and a few seconds to destroy it

Do not Hurt
It takes a few seconds to ...
