    Sand and Stone

    A story tells that two friends were riding
    through the desert.
    During some point in the journey, they stopped
    and had an
    argument and one friend
    slapped the other one in the face. The one who got
    slapped was hurt but
    without saying anything, he wrote in the sand:
    "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE."

    They kept riding 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 his friend saved him.
    After he recovered from the near
    drowning, he carved 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?"
    He replied,
    "When someone hurts us, we should
    write it down in sand where
    the 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."
