A Lesson In Life


Once...There was a race of people, not too unlike ourselves.  All of them were alike, except that on their backs, each of them had a beautiful jewel that shined and glimmered.  These people though, upon seeing the jewel on another's back, became jealous and full of envy and hate.  None of these people though, could see the own wonderful jewel they had themselves, only the one that others had...

The meaning of this story?

Others are always quick to see what qualities you have that they do not, so they compliment you, and envy you...But you are never quick to see your own beauty...So you always wish for what others have that you don't.
