Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence.

       (Most importantly the last sentence.)

       There once was a little boy who had a bad

       temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails

       and told him that every time he lost his

       temper, he must hammer a nail into the back

       of the fence. The first day the boy had

       driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next

       few weeks, as he learned to control his

       anger, the number of nails hammered daily

       gradually dwindled down. He discovered

       it was easier to hold his temper than to

       drive those nails into the fence.

       Finally the day came when the boy didn't

       lose his temper at all. He told his father

       about it and the father suggested that the

       boy now pull out one nail for each day that

       he was able to hold his temper.

       The days passed and the young boy was finally

       able to tell his father that all the nails

       were gone. The father took his son by the

       hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You

       have done well, my son, but look at the

       holes in the fence. The fence will never be

       the same. When you say things in anger,

       they leave a scar just like this one. You

       can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

       It won't matter how many times you say I'm

       sorry, the wound is still there. " A verbal

       wound is as bad as a physical one.

       Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They

       make you smile and encourage you to succeed.

       They lend an ear, they share words of praise

       and they always want to open their hearts to us."

Friendship is like the relation between the hands and the eyes.
Its like when the hand gets hurt the eyes cry and when
the eyes cry the hand wipe its tears.
