The great scientist Sir Isaac Newton

The great scientist Sir Isaac Newton worked several hours every day for twenty years and wrote down the results of his brilliant research. One day he went out for a walk leaving the papers on the table. His pet dog diamond was lying in the room.

 A few minutes later, it jumped on to the table playfully. Due to this, the burning candle fell on the bundle of manuscript and it caught fire. Twenty years of hard research was reduced to ashes within minutes.

When Newton came back he was shocked. His precious papers were now a handful of ashes. Any one else would have beaten the dog to death. But Newton simply stroked the dog's head and said looking at it with pity Diamond, you know not what you have done.

He started writing again. It took him several years to complete the task. How great was his compassion for the dumb animal. Newton's heart was as great as his head.

It is difficult to forgive a wrong done to you  yet, with a stronger will it is possible. To forget the whole episode requires super human effort and nobility of heart.

If you develop the habit of forgiving and forgetting, you will not have any enemy in this wide world. You will be friendly with all.


  1. //Newton's heart was as great as his head.//rightly said, unless he is calm and patient, he wont complete the task at last.
