I say my prayers when it`s calm.

This is a story of a sea captain who on his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Shetland Islands. On one trip, the boat was full of young people. They laughed at the old captain when they saw him say a prayer before sailing out, because the day was fine and the sea was calm.

 

However they weren`t long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to pitch violently. The terrified passengers came to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer.

 

But he replied, "I say my prayers when it`s calm. When it`s rough I attend to my ship."

 


If we cannot and will not seek God in quiet moments of our lives; we are not likely to find Him when trouble strikes. We are more likely to panic. But if we have learnt to seek Him and trust Him in quiet moments, then most certainly we will find Him when the going gets tough.

Mr. Ratan Tata, the true leader.

Majority in number does not always mean right.

Leadership is doing what is right even under pressure.

Always be kind, and it will come back to you

Forgiveness is greater than revenge
