Moral Stories 02: Mark Twain and arrogant woman


At a party, Mark Twain sat opposite a woman. Politely, he told this man, “You are so beautiful!”

The woman did not appreciate, but also said proudly: “Unfortunately I have no way to say the same compliment to him!”

Mark Twain was very calm, saying, “No problem, you can be like me, say a lie.”

The woman listened, too embarrassed, had to bow down without saying a word.

Small hint:

The rock you throw at it, the person it hits will always be yourself;

You say harsh words, will eventually take on the same humiliation.
