Don't judge very fast
Don't judge very fast
The following picture are of the same place but taken in different seasons...
There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge
things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look
at a pear tree that was a great distance away.
The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall.
When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.
The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.
The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise.
The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.
The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.
The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.
He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.
If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring the beauty of your summer, the fulfillment of your fall.
Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.
Don't judge life by one difficult season.
Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later.

@Karlo-anchiloti-madrid Hi there Hocine !
Oh I loved your story too my friend . Thank you so much for sharing it with us. :hugging:
I wonder though... Where do you find such stories and tales with morals on the internet? I know for a fact that there are plenty of wonderful tales coming from China and Russia and other countries. But till today I had never thought of looking up for them on the web. As a child, many years ago I used to watch so often amazing fairy tales & stories like yours on my tv. Lovely times back then. ( nostalgic moment ...ahhhh...sigh... )
P.S. I'm listening to Vivaldi's - Four seasons right now , after I was inspired by your tale.
Thank you so much SUPERNOVA
