Sand and Stone

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During
some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped
the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without
saying anything, wrote in the sand: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN
THE FACE.”
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they
decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the
mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend
recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: “TODAY MY BEST
FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.”
The friend who had slapped and saved his best
friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you
write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied: “When someone hurts
us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase
it away.
But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in
stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
