    Title: The Lily and the Mower
    Written by: Thomas Bundgaard Jensen

    The lily watched how the mower cut the grass. This filled him with an almost uncontrollable indignation. He felt how the tension shone vividly like a star wound in his flower-face — moved from the stamen to the tips of his magnificent, vigorous petals just to spread down his slim stem and from there to his whole body. Before the mower commenced cutting the lawn, the grass had shone so exuberantly in the caressing sunlight, but now the mower destroyed the bustle of happiness and freedom. Now he couldn’t control himself any longer — he shouted: “Why in heaven’s name are you destroying this splendid lawn? Doesn’t the mass beheading of all these star twinkling daisies make you feel ashamed of yourself?”
    “I’m just doing my bloody job — to ensure the overall impression. It isn’t your bleeding garden so why don’t you just bugger off!”
    The crude language of the mower was like petrol being splashed on the fire of his anger, of his tension filled body. He couldn’t attack the mower other than verbally — which he could see was pointless — and he couldn’t escape from the garden either. It seemed that there was nothing that the lily could do. He just had to submit to this unfortunate situation. He closed his eyes and sighed painfully.

    The Salesman

    A young Salesperson was disappointed. He had lost an important sale. In discussing the matter with the Sales Manager, the young man shrugged. "I guess," he said "it just proves you can lead a horse to water, but you can not make him drink." "Son," said the Sales Manager, "let me...
    The Salesman

    A young Salesperson was disappointed. He had lost an important sale. In discussing the matter with the Sales Manager, the young man shrugged. "I guess," he said "it just proves you can lead a horse to water, but you can not make him drink." "Son," said the Sales Manager, "let me give you a piece of advice: your job is not to make him drink. It's to make him thirsty."

    The Ass and the Frogs

    An ass, carrying a load of wood, passed through a pond. As he was crossing through the water he lost his footing, stumbled and fell, and not being able to rise on account of his load, groaned heavily.
    Some Frogs frequenting the pool heard his lamentation, and said, "What...
    The Ass and the Frogs

    An ass, carrying a load of wood, passed through a pond. As he was crossing through the water he lost his footing, stumbled and fell, and not being able to rise on account of his load, groaned heavily.
    Some Frogs frequenting the pool heard his lamentation, and said, "What would you do if you had to live here always as we do, when you make such a fuss about a mere fall into the water?"

    Men often bear little grievances with less courage than they do large misfortunes.

    Frog in a Milk-Pail

    A frog was hopping around a farmyard, when it decided to investigate the barn. Being somewhat careless, and maybe a little too curious, he ended up falling into a pail half-filled with fresh milk. As he swam about attempting to reach the top of the pail, he found that the...
    Frog in a Milk-Pail

    A frog was hopping around a farmyard, when it decided to investigate the barn. Being somewhat careless, and maybe a little too curious, he ended up falling into a pail half-filled with fresh milk. As he swam about attempting to reach the top of the pail, he found that the sides of the pail were too high and steep to reach. He tried to stretch his back legs to push off the bottom of the pail but found it too deep. But this frog was determined not to give up, and he continued to struggle. He kicked and squirmed and kicked and squirmed, until at last, all his churning about in the milk had turned the milk into a big hunk of butter. The butter was now solid enough for him to climb onto and get out of the pail! "Never Give Up!"

    Who Is The Rich Man?

    One day a wealthy father took his son on a trip to the country so that the son could see how the poor lived. They spent a day and a night at the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "Very good, Dad!" "Did you see how poor people can be?" "Yeah!" "And what did you learn?" The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the house; they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard; they have the whole horizon." When the little boy was finished, the father was speechless. His son then added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are!"
