“It is easy to look at people and make quick judgements about them, their present and their past, but you would be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, its lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul. Never judge, learn to respect and acknowledge the feelings of another.”

A doctor entered the hospital in a hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call immediately, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father walking up and down the hall waiting for a doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said: “I am sorry, I was not in the hospital and I came as fast as I could after receiving the call and now I wish you would calm down so that I can do my work.”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily.
