There was this museum
layed with beautiful marble tiles, with a huge marble displayed in the middle of
the lobby. Many people come all over the world just to admire this beautiful
marble statue. One night, the marble tiles started talking to the marble statue.
Marble tile : "Marble statue, it's just not fair, it's just not fair! Why everybody from all over the world come all the way just to step on me while admiring you? Not fair!"
Marble statue : My dear friend, marble tile. Do you still remember that we were actually from the same cave.
Marble tile : Yah! That's why I feel that it is even more unfair. We were born from the same cave and we have different treatment. Not fair (he cried).
Marble statue : Then, do you still remember that day when the designer tried to work on you, but you resisted the tools?
Marble tile : Yes of course I remember, I hate him. How can he use those tools on me, it hurt so badly.
Marble statue : That's right! He can't work on you at all as you resisted being work on.
Marble tile : so????
Marble statue : When he decided to give you up and start working on me instead, I know at once after that I will be something different after his effort. I did not resist his tools, instead I bear all the pain that the tools he used on me.
Marble tile : hmmmmmmm.
Marble statue : My friend, there is a price to everything in life. Since you decided to give up half way, you can't blame anybody who step on you now
