The story of the pieces of paper in the wind

Do not arbitrarily make any comments or statements about another person when you have not had a valid basis, because that may ruin honor, even their lives.

Once upon a time in a village, an old man did not like his young neighbor. So he spread the word, “My neighbor is a thief.”

One day, a burglary occurred in the area, and because of that rumor, all doubts were on the young man. Finally, he was arrested.

A few days later, the police conducted an investigation and concluded that the young man was unjust and released him. He felt extremely embarrassed when he walked home and decided to sue the old neighbor for spreading rumors about him.

Do not arbitrarily make any comments or statements about another person when you have not had a valid basis

At the court, when the judge asked the man why he had thrown those baseless rumors to the young man, he replied, “It’s just personal comments. It doesn’t hurt anyone.” … ”

Before making a verdict, the judge told the old man: “Today before you go home, write everything you said about him on a piece of paper and shred them. Bring the pieces of paper. Cut it up, then spread it all over you.

The old man went back and did as the judge said.

The next day, the judge told him: “Before accepting the sentence, I want you to do one more job.”

“What is it?”, The man asked again.

“You have to go out, collect all the pieces of paper that you threw out yesterday,” the judge answered.

The old man was shocked and said, “What’s the matter? It must be that the wind brought them away, I won’t be able to find them.”

At this point, the judge announced: “Just like his negative remarks about neighbors, they will fly everywhere that we cannot recall.”

The old man realized his mistake and asked for the forgiveness of the young man.

Lesson learned: Do not arbitrarily make any comments or statements about another person when you have not had a valid basis, because it can ruin honor, even their lives.
