The Scorpion and the Frog

One day, a scorpion looked around at the mountain where he lived and decided that he wanted a change. So he set out on a journey through the forests and hills. He climbed over rocks and under vines and kept going until he reached a river. The river was wide and swift, and the scorpion stopped to reconsider the situation. He couldn't see any way across. So he ran upriver and then checked downriver, all the while thinking that he might have to turn back.
Suddenly, he saw a frog sitting in the rushes by the bank of the stream on the other side of the river. He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.
"Hellooo Mr. Frog!" called the scorpion across the water, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?"
"Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly.
"Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die too, for you see I cannot swim!"
Now this seemed to make sense to the frog. But he asked. "What about when I get close to the bank? You could still try to kill me and get back to the shore!"
"This is true," agreed the scorpion, "But then I wouldn't be able to get to the other side of the river!"
"Alright do I know you wont just wait till we get to the other side and THEN kill me?" said the frog.
"Ahh...," crooned the scorpion, "Because you see, once you've taken me to the other side of this river, I will be so grateful for your help, that it would hardly be fair to reward you with death, now would it?!"
So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river. He swam over to the bank and settled himself near the mud to pick up his passenger. The scorpion crawled onto the frog's back, his sharp claws prickling into the frog's soft hide, and the frog slid into the river. The muddy water swirled around them, but the frog stayed near the surface so the scorpion would not drown. He kicked strongly through the first half of the stream, his flippers paddling wildly against the current.
Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog's back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.
"You fool!" croaked the frog, "Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?"
The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drownings frog's back.
"I could not help myself. It is my nature."
Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.

Story No:2 I liked this story, it's very inspiring...I hop you you like it..

*The Coincidence..

*Story No:1
One day while I am going to university. and I walking as usual,hopeing inside me of many feelings towards the society that I live ..
Then I walked around a large basin in which water and then sat on the side of the tub to relax a bit fact I was on this day frustrated and tired boredom of everything ...
While I sat I heard a voice calling me from the left side.A young man asked me to sit next to him ...
This young man seems simple and belongs to the poor class of society ..
When I sat with him I began to question. Why you call me? ... he did not answer!.I asked again what you want?he did not answer!I asked for the third time, In any side you want to talk ?No answer!!!

then I changed the question.Are you studying at university?

Now he began to speak ...

*He said :"I do not ...

*I told him who are you?...And what are you doing here ...

*He said I hated life,I hated myself,..Life is not is very difficult ...ect

*I said what do you do ..?

*He Said I do not work ...I do not have any job..

*I said why you came here?.

*I came here to know if students suffer and pain like what I'm suffering

*I asked him what is your level of study?

*He told me I did not study!,I did not go to school, never!

*I Noticed him concern, through shaking his hands and then he took out a cigarette.

*He said to me ..Please answer me do you suffer like I suffer.

*I told him that every man and every person has his own problems and suffering ..

You are not alone in this world ...

I stop here because the story is long...:)

I told him a lot of talk to make him feel comfortable and to help him to come out of this thinking can be dangerous, which will lead him to the most serious problems ..

As much as I tried to make a smile on his face what I felt sooner I also felt happy ..Then I understand he is helped me too...

The lesson I taken from this story is ..Before I met this young man I was in bad mood... But then I knew that I am much better than a lot of people who suffer more than me. Then I smiled and went to my class.
