I was looking through some of my old emails - and as it so often happens, I rediscovered a few wonderful mails! I particularly enjoyed one such forward and thought I'd share it with you:-


Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship's owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure out how to fix the engine.

Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom. Two of the ship's owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do.

After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars. "What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!" So they wrote the old man a note saying, "Please send us an itemized bill."

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer ........................ $2.00
Knowing where to tap ............................ $9998.00
You may be doing something in life which many people consider trivial; but when you do what you do better than anybody else, your moment of glory will arrive! Like the very meaningful 3 words of my school's motto (PSBB) read- Knowledge is Power!

That was such a cute forward :)

Knowledge is power.. but little knowledge is also a dangerous thing.. Our school motto was.. "Do well all that you do!" and I loved it!

Ok this is a such a random messed up comment, ignore it :P
