The Candid Candle
Posted October 24, 2012on:
In olden times people lighted their homes with oil lamps. The trunks and big stems of the plants were used as candles.
There was one candle, in the house, which was the largest and most beautiful among all candles. It needed large quantity of thick oil. So it used to feeling proud to be, the most shining candle.
One day it announced before a large gathering that it is brighter than the sun, the moon, and the stars.
Suddenly, gusts of wind flashing through the window blew it off.
The servant who lighted it said: “Shine now, dear candle! Think before you speak as there is no wind strong enough to blow out the lights of heaven.”
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Think before you speak !
