One day, a school teacher wrote the following on a whiteboard,


When the teacher was finished he looked to his students and some of the class began to laugh.

When he asked them why, one student pointed out that the second equation was wrong.

The teacher responded by saying, "I wrote the second one wrong on purpose to show you something very important. This is how some people will treat you. You can see that I wrote five other right answers, but only some of you gave me credit for that. Some of you laughed and criticized me for the one wrong thing that I did. Throughout your life, some people won’t appreciate you or what you do, and will put you down given an opportunity."

Don’t be distracted by criticism. The only time that some people taste success is when they take a bite out of you.



Six of the best from the late, great Tommy Cooper,

  1. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly. They lit a fire in the craft, it sank, proving once and for all that you can’t have your kayak and heat it.
  2. I visited the offices of the RSPCA today. It’s tiny: you couldn’t swing a cat in there.
  3. This cowboy walks in to a German car showroom and he says ‘Audi!’
  4. I was driving up the motorway and my boss phoned me and told me I’d been promoted. I was so shocked I swerved the car. He phoned again to say I’d been promoted even higher and I swerved again. He then made me Managing Director and I went right off into a tree. The police came and asked me what had happened. I said ‘I careered off the road.’
  5. Our ice cream man was found lying on the floor of his van covered with hundreds and thousands. Police say that he topped himself.
  6. You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen.’ It said, ‘Parking Fine.’


Live big & love deep.
