Neis in the fence !

There once was 
a little boy who had a bad temper.  His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day 
the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.  Over the next 
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, ! the number of nails hammered daily 
gradually dwindled down.  He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.  Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all.

The days 
passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father 
took his son by the hand and led him to the fence..  He said, 'You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.  The fence will 
never be the same.  When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.  You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.  But It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there.  A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 Remember that friends are very rare jewels, indeed. 
 They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.  They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open 
their hearts to us.'
