Most Important Question

During the second month of nursing school, professor gave students a pop quiz. One student was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until he read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. He had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would he know her name? He handed in his paper, leaving the last question blank. Before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello".

Later on he also learned her name was Dorothy.

Moral of the story:

A task could be a small or simple to perform, but an individual can not…

That’s the nice story really it’s important to give respect to every one and every work, from this story I remember one story which I read in my school library that was also much inspiring so I just summarize it here.

Long years ago there were an air force pilot of U.S. army who awarded for serving food and arms to shoulders on battle field and at ceremony he told that “I don’t deserve this award because deserving person is one who fill fuel on my plane in rapid rate that’s why I am able to reach on time on field. So he is only one person who deserve this award, my task is not much important”

Thank you
