His name was Fleming and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to eke out a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy farmer Fleming had saved.
“I want to repay you,” said the nobleman. “You saved my son’s life.”
“No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,” the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.
“Is that your son?” the nobleman asked. “Yes,” the farmer replied proudly.
“I’ll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll grow to be a man you can be proud of.”
And that he did. In time, farmer Fleming’s son graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the nobleman’s son was stricken with pneumonia. What saved him? — Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? — Lord Randolph Churchill.
His son’s name? — Sir Winston Churchill.
“You can have everything you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” — Zig Ziglar
Life is an echo.
What we send out — comes back.
What we sow — we reap.
What we give — we get.
What we see in others — exists in us.
Remember, life is an echo.
It always gets back to us.
We used pencil when we were small, but now we use pens…
Because mistakes in the childhood can be erased but not now…
Every action, big or small, every word, thought and emotions, whether positive or negative, will definitely give result sooner or later. So, we should be very careful in our actions, in what we speak, the emotions and feelings we entertain in the mind and the thoughts we carry in our intellect.
We should be careful in what we sow and what we give, if we want only the good and the positives to come back to us.
