A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert.
During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped
the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without
saying anything, wrote in the sand:
LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE."
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided
to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and
started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the
near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
"TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him,
After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone.
The other friend replied: When someone hurts us we should write it
down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when
someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone
where no wind can ever erase it."
AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.
