The pencil maker took the pencil aside just before putting it into the pencil case. There are 5 things you need to know', he told the pencil ' before I send you into the world. Always remember them, never forget and you will become the best pencil you can be:-
Here they are:-
1. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be guided by your parents, teachers and mentors.
2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you will need it to become a better pencil.
3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
4. The most important part of you will always be what is inside.
5. On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the contions, you must continue to write.
The pencil understood, promised to remember and went into the pencil case with purpose in its heart.
