The Cat Who Lived in a Palace!

A lady with grace is impossible to despise. Be the gold at the end of the rainbow. The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of four S's:- Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy & Serenity. Knowledge without wisdom is like a beautiful lady without morals. 

A daughter once asked her father what is my value. Her father gave her a stone & asked her to sell it in the market and whoever enquires the price, not to say anything, just raise two fingers. The daughter went to the market and a woman asked her for the stone, saying she will keep it in her garden. The daughter said nothing & raised two fingers, then the woman said rupees 2000/- fine, i'll take it. The daughter returned home to her father & asked whether she should sell it or not. The father said take the stone to the museum this time & she did the same, when enquired about the cost, she said nothing and raised two fingers, this time she was offered rupees 200000/- The daughter was surprised, and she returned to her father to ask whether she should sell it this time or not. Her father now asked her to go to a precious stones shop. She did the same & this time the owner offered her rupees 200000000/- saying it is a rare stone, & where did she find it. The daughter was shocked, she came running back to her father, to ask what to do. Her father said, "my dear daughter, now do you realise your value? Your value depends where you choose to place yourself. It does not matter where you came from, but where you choose to be, will decide your value. Your value depends on the people you choose to surround yourself with, the friends you choose, on the environment you choose to be in. You can choose to place yourself in the market or you can choose to place yourself in a precious stone shop. It all depends on what you choose. Also dear, remember, there is a diamond within each one of us, but it is seen only by the right people, who are rare in this world. Similarly, in life you can choose to see the diamond in others and help them see the diamond in themselves. It all depends on your perspective & where you choose to place yourself, & on how you approach towards people & situations." 

Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence. The strength of a lady is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her, but the strength of a lady is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her & who she becomes. Be yourself but in the right perspective.
