A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hang the wash outside.

That laundry is not very clean, she said, she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap. Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: “Look! She has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.”

The husband said: “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows!”

And so it is with life: “What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look. Before we give any criticism, it might be a good idea to check our state of mind and ask
ourselves if we are ready to see the good rather than to be looking for something in the person we are about to judge. “

What is most useless things in our life??? ARGUMENT this is one interaction that always arouses opposition, and rarely secures co-operation.

There is a story about a man who asked to see a good wool suit, in a clothing store. The clerk produced a suit, the customer examined it and said, ‘This looks good, but it does not look like wool to me. I do not belives it is wool.”

‘But you liked it?” inquired the salesman.

“Yes, I like it all right, but do not think it is wool.”

“Shall I wrap it up for you?”

“Sure, I guess I will take it.”

After the package wrapped, the man said, “tell me, why you did not argue with me when I told you it was not wool? As a matter of fact, I believe it is wool.’

“Well’, said the salesman, taking his money. “you see, if I win the argument¬† I lose the sale, so what is the use?”
