Ms. Higgins asked the class, “If you were to choose between fortune & prosperity at one end, and cleverness & intellect on the other, what would be your choice?”
John raised his hand and answered, “I would opt for fortune & prosperity.”
Mrs. Higgins said, “If I were you, I would choose cleverness and intellect.”
John was quick to answer, “Maybe you are right, one chooses what one is deficient in.”
Mrs. Cole, the science teacher, took her students out of school for a social experiment. They arrived at a farmhouse and she placed two buckets in front of a donkey – one filled with water and the other with alcohol.
The donkey drank all the water while leaving the alcohol untouched.
Mrs. Cole asked the students, “What did you learn from this experiment?”
One boy replied, “One who does not drink alcohol is a donkey!”
