Last chat between father and son by Ann Wood

A father said to his son before he died:
"This is a watch my grandfather gave me and is more than 100 years old. But before I give it to you, go to the watch store and say you want to sell it to see how much it costs! ".
The son left and, after he returned, said, "It's worth $ 5 because it's old!"
His father said:
"-Go to the cafe, ask there!"
The son is gone.
"And they told me they could pay $ 5 for the watch!"
Then the father said,
"-Go to the museum and show them this watch!" The son went again, and after returning, told his father:
"They offered me one million dollars for this watch!"
Then the father said,
"I wanted to show you that you have to go to the right place to get the right assessment. Many people stand in the wrong place and are angry that they are not valued. Who knows your value will appreciate you! Don't stay in a place they don't value or value you cheaper than you really are! "
Know Your Value!

A brilliant work, Ann:
When we are children we asked questans. At times on receiving
answers some children say: '' But why'', has a follow up question.
When we achieve ageing. We should be like we were has a child ask questans folowde by the followed by: '' But why? ''
We should never stop asking questans! AND never except the answers as final. Ask others the same questans read more than more than one book read a score and more. Then you we can decide for our selfs on the answers.
Thank you Ann, you got me to thinking.
