Life is known to teach everyone valuable lessons. While some are part of our upbringing, the others come with experiences. All of them may not apply at the time of learning, but they do not leave us. They have a way of coming back around. Do you remember, as kids, we had tales that had a moral? I, for one. learned a lot through them. The story of the tortoise and hare taught me that slow and steady wins the race. There are a lot of stories like them, so here are 6 stories with such important lessons. 

1.  A little bird was migrating south for the winter. But, it was so cold and the poor bird froze and fell to the ground in the middle of a large field.

While he was lying there, unable to move, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there, stuck under the pile of dung, he began to realize that being stuck under the cow dung was actually helping him. He was feeling warmer by the minute. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy and soon began to sing, out of sheer joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Soon, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.


Morals of the story:
1.  Not everyone who sh*ts on you is your enemy.
2.  Not everyone who gets you out of sh*t is your friend.
3.  And when you’re in deep sh*t, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!

2. An eagle was sitting on a tree resting. Basically, he was doing nothing at all. 

A small rabbit saw the eagle and intrigued, it asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?" The eagle immediately answered, "Sure, why not." Immediately, the rabbit sat below the eagle, right on the ground, and rested just like the eagle was. All of a sudden, a fox appeared out of nowhere. He then jumped on the rabbit and ate it. The fox didn't have to do anything to feed himself.


Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

3.  A turkey was chatting with a bull and told him, "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree" sighed the turkey, "but I haven’t got the energy."

"Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They’re packed with nutrients." The turkey then pecked at a lump of dung, only to find that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally, after a fourth night, the turkey proudly made it all the way to the top of the tree. However, his happiness was shortlived. A farmer, who spotted him on the tree immediately shot him down. 


Moral of the story:
Bull Sh*t might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.

4. A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out of the lamp. The Genie grants each one a wish. "Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Puff! She’s gone. "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas, and the love of my life." Puff! He’s gone. "OK, you’re up," the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."


Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.

5. A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.

The priest nearly had an accident and struggled to control the car, but once he did, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"  The priest removed his hand. But, he just couldn't control himself, and so, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again told him, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest apologized, and said, "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak." They arrived at the convent and the nun let out a heavy sigh and went her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, ‘Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.’


Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
