Never be sure of what future holds for you


The Sultan of Persia had sentenced two men to death.One of the men, knowing how much the sultan liked his stallion, offered to teach the horse to fly within a year if the sultan would spare him his life. The sultan, fancying himself as the rider of the only flying horse in the world, agreed. “You’re mad,” said the other prisoner. “You know that horses can’t fly. You’re only putting off the inevitable.” “Not so,” said the first prisoner. “I have four chances of escaping my sentence. First, the sultan might die. Secondly, I might die. Thirdly, the horse might die. And fourth…I might teach the horse to fly.”

Moral: Never be too certain of what the future holds.
