The real meaning of the rich and the poor depends on the Angle of view

One day a rich father took his young son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose to show him how poor people can be. They spent a day and night in the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip the father asked his son, "how was the trip?"

 

  "Very good, Dad!"

  

  "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked。

  

  "Yeah!" "And what did you learn?"

  

  The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden; they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard; they have a whole horizon."

  

  When the little boy was finishing, his father was speechless。

  

  His son added, "Thanks, dad, for showing me how poor we are!"

  

  Isn't it true that it all depends on the way we look at things? If we have love, friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude toward life, we've got everything!

鞋子穿得舒不舒服,唯有自己知道;生活过得幸不幸福,自己感受;是否拥有了一切?取向于你对生活的追求!

But the real problem is most of us like the frog in the well that only can see a very narrow & limited view.Several of them could stand above the well and could have comparatively comprehensive feeling and understanding about the world outside.

外面的世界很精彩(f) 但是我们有时候就像井里的青蛙,只能看到一个非常狭窄和有限的世界。(headbang)
