One day, a school teacher wrote the following on board:
The students laughed at her for getting the first equation wrong.
Then the teacher said the following:
“I wrote that first one wrong on purpose,
because I wanted you to learn something important.
This was for you to know how the world out there will treat you.
You can see that I wrote RIGHT 9 times,
but none of you congratulated me for it.
You all laughed and criticized me because of one wrong thing I did.
So this is the lesson:
The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times,
but will criticize the one wrong thing you do.
But don’t get discouraged,
Always rise above all the laughter and criticism.
