Can we be Like a PENCIL!!

I read this nice piece or writing in the book by Tanenbaum "Morden Operating systems"

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him
into the box. There are 5 things you need to know, he told the
pencil, before I send you out into the world. Always remember
them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you
can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you
allow yourself to be held in someone's hand.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time,
but you'll need it to become a better pencil.

Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what's
inside.

And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your
mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into
the box with purpose in its heart.
