Wisdom From A Laugh 36

Writing Lines
A woman was charged in court for traffic violation. She was brought
before the magistrate. When asked for her occupation, the woman said
she was a schoolteacher. The magistrate rose from the bench.
He smiled at the woman and said,
"For years I have been waiting for a lady teacher to appear before me
in this court. Now, you sit down at that table and write :
‘I will not break the traffic rules' five hundred times!"
There are people who bury in their hearts thoughts of revenge or of getting even with one for whom they harbour ill will or hatred. They just cannot let go of the past and learn to forgive and grow in compassion and wisdom. Such people will suffer in their mental states. Can they be at peace when they have to face the 'Final Examination' of death?
