The Story of the Boy and the King (from Al-Quran, in Surah al-Burooj)

Whenever the boy went to the sorcerer, he sat with a monk who was on the way and listened to his speech and admired them.

Being Proactive Leads to Success

Two sons work for their father on the family's farm. The younger brother had for some years been given more responsibility and reward, and one day the older brother asks his father to explain why? The father says, "First, go to the Jon's Farm and see if they have any Geese for sale - we need to add to our stock."
