There is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him.
“I have given you many things in your life. I have tried to show you the importance of friendship, to instill in you a sense of value for your fellow man, a bond of love, a way of living and an understanding and compassion for the worth of the individual.
I have given you love and guidance. I have taught you to respect yourself and others, to value life rather than to ridicule it. I have given you a sense of purpose, a pattern for living and working with others in a cooperative way.
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no farther. Then the man decided to help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
Jerry was the kind of guy you love to hate. He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!"
He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
Un jour, les couleurs du monde ont commencé à se quereller…
Chacune disait qu’elle était la plus belle…
la plus importante… la plus utile… la favorite!
Vert dit :
Je suis définitivement la plus importante.
Je suis le signe de la vie et de l’espoir.
J’ai été choisie par les champs, les arbres et les feuilles.
Sans moi, les animaux ne vivraient pas.
Regardez un pré de montagne et vous constaterez que je suis majoritaire.

Un homme qui se promenait vit un cocon dans un petit trou.
Il s'arrêta de longues heures à observer le papillon qui s'efforçait de sortir par ce petit trou. Après un long moment, le papillon semblait avoir abandonné, et on aurait dit qu'il avait fait tout ce qu'il pouvait pour sortir de ce trou, sans succès.
Alors, l'homme décida d'aider le papillon : il prit un canif et ouvrit le cocon.
