Great Stories

We all love stories.We all grow by hearing stories from grand parents.Every public speaker has his own story.Every successful person has a story.Stories are fun to read and a medium to communicate complicated subjects in simple format.
In my childhood,my grandpa used to tell stories every night.We brothers grow listening to his stories.We used to write a long list of comics and story books whenever he went to get his pension,every month.
I read "CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL" by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen,couple of weeks before.It contains 101 stories which will motivate,inspire.It has stories organised under 7 categories: 1.Love 2.Learning to love yourself 3.On Parenting 4.On Learning 5.Live your Dream 6.Overcoming Obstacles 7.Eclectic Wisdom.
I love the stories in categories 2,5,6 very much.The stories gave me a great inspiration.
On the starting page of Learning to love yourself,the following little piece is there:

Oliver Wendell Homes once attended a meeting,in which he was the shortest man present.
"Dr.Holmes," quipped a friend,"I should think you'd feel rather small among us big fellows."
"I do," retorted Holmes,"I feel like a dime among a lot of pennies".
Beautiful.
On the page of Live your dream,there is a small piece:
People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.Wonderful words.
The 333 story,the story about Les Brown,Follow your dream,Risking,the story of Le Van Vu are motivating,inspiring.
On the page of Overcoming obstacles,the following lines are there:
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.- Henry Ford. These words are eternal.
Consider this,Abraham lincoln didn't quit,Yes,you can,Run Patti,Run,the Power of Optimism are great stories of inspiration.
It is a great book which leads to a series of chicken soup books.
Buy it,read it,read it to your children.
