2. Fear and Respect

Once there was a kingdom far, far away. The king of that Kingdom was a notorious dictator. No one was above him. He was the highest after gods. He could get anyone killed anytime he feels violated. If he saw someone he felt was better than him in one way or another, he would just order his guards to execute that person.

One day, he met an old man in the woods where he went hunting. He went down to ask the old man what he was doing in the woods alone.

The old man on seeing the king burst;

Old man: You notorious king! you will forever be hated by generations. get away from me.

The king was furious and said,

King: How dare you speak ill of me, your king?

Old man: You are not my king. Said the old man. How can you be my king when i have no respect for you?

King: I am respected throughout the kingdom. Said the king. Everyone kneels and bow down before me on the sight of me. They respect me and as their king.

Old man: They don’t respect you, they only fear you! That’s why they bow down before you and keep their faces away from your conniving glance.

King: What’s the difference? Asked the king. I’ve sense their respect for me.

Old man: Have you sensed their love for you even for a bit? Stop deceiving yourself. Supposed a monster jumps out now and threaten to end your life when you look at its face. Will you respect it or be afraid of it?

King: I would be very afraid of it and keeps my head down not to look at his fearsome face.

Old man: That’s exactly what happens to your subject. They don’t want to see your fearsome face just like you wouldn’t look at the monster’s face.

King: But i only wanted to be respected! I wanted to be loved by everyone of my subjects.

Old man: You can’t force anyone to love you or respect you. You must earn it. Not with violence and bloodshed. You want to win their hearts first and to do that, you must give your heart to them. If they respected you they wouldn’t hide their faces away. They would always raise their heads and you would be able to see their love for you on their faces, in their smiles on seeing you.

King: That’s all i want. To be loved and respected. Kind sir, how can i achieve this? Please tell me.

Old man: You do the opposite of what you’ve been doing all these years. Make up for your misdeeds.

King: I’ll do just that. Thank you very much kind sir.

Old man: Remember one thing, there’s no respect in fear, but there’s fear in respect. When they respect you, they’ll be afraid to do you wrong. That’s all, my king.

The king happily rode back to his palace with a great smile on his face. Ever since he returned from the woods, he was a changed man. The kingdom started changing for the better and soon everyone lived happily ever after.

Inspirational stories for students

Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.” 

Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.”

5. Boy’s Weakness 

A 10-year-old boy decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.

The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn’t understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move. “Sensei,”(Teacher in Japanese) the boy finally said, “Shouldn’t I be learning more moves?” “This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you’ll ever need to know,” the sensei replied.

Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training. Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.

This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened. “No,” the sensei insisted, “Let him continue.” Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament.

He was the champion. On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind.

 “Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?”

 “You won for two reasons,” the sensei answered. “First, you’ve almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm.”

The boy’s biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.

6. The Lion and The Mouse 

A Mouse running over his face awakened a Lion from sleep. Rising up angrily, he caught him and was about to kill him. Then the Mouse piteously entreated, saying:

“If you would only spare my life, I would be sure to repay your kindness.” The Lion laughed at him but allowed him go. It happened shortly after this that some hunters, who bound him by strong ropes to the ground, caught the Lion. The Mouse, recognizing his roar, came and gnawed the rope with his teeth, and set him free, exclaiming:

“You ridiculed the idea of my ever being able to help you, never expecting to receive from me any repayment of your favor,  Now you know that it is possible for even a Mouse to confer benefits on a Lion.” 

7. Struggles of our Life 

Inspirational moral stories For Students

Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.

Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.

Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.

“Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.

He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.

Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.

The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

“Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”
