This story called, “The Parable of the Pencil” by an unknown author has so many lessons for life.
The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.
“There are five things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “before I
send you out into the world.”
“Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best
pencil you can be.
“One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow
yourself to be held in Someone's hand.”
“Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but
you'll need it to become a better pencil.”
“Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.”
“Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside.”
“And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No
matter what the condition, you must continue to write.”
