love and marriage.....


One day, Plato asked his teacher, "What is love? How can I find it?"

His teacher -Socrates answered, "There is a vast wheat field in front. Walk
forward without turning back, and pick only one stalk. If you find the
most magnificent stalk, then you have found love."

Plato walked forward, and before long, he returned with empty hands,
having picked nothing.

His teacher asked, "Why did you not pick any stalk?"

Plato answered, "Because I could only pick once, and yet I could not turn
back. I did find the most magnificent stalk, but did not know if there
were any better ones ahead, so I did not pick it. As I walked further, the
stalks that I saw were not as good as the earlier one, so I did not pick
any in the end.

His teacher then said, "And that is love."

On another day, Plato asked his teacher, "What is marriage? How can I 
Find it?"

His teacher answered, "There is a thriving forest in front. Walk forward
without turning back, and chop down only one tree. If you find the tallest
tree, then you have found marriage."

Plato walked forward, and before long, he returned with a tree. The tree
was not thriving, and it was not tall either. It was only an ordinary
tree.

His teacher asked, "Why did you chop down such an ordinary tree?"

Plato answered, "Because of my previous experience. I walked halfway
through the forest, but returned with empty hands. This time, I saw this
tree, and I felt that it was not bad, so I chopped it down and brought it
back. I did not want to miss the opportunity."

His teacher then said, "And that is marriage."
love as they say...itz value is seldom known until it is gone...and as they say marriage is a compromise....!!!

     keep the faith
                                                ciao ciao!!!
