Beautiful heart

...after some months at the faculty of medicine, the professor gave us a test.

Being a good student, I quickly answered all the questions...all, but the last: "What is the baptism name of the maid of our institute?

I handed over my test paper, leaving the last question unanswered. Just before the lesson ended, another student inquired if the last question would be maked.

"Certainly!", the professor replied. "You will meet many people in your life. All of them will have some degree of importance. They will deserve your attention, even if it is a simple smile or a simple hello"

I never forgot this lesson...and went on to learn that the baptism name of our maid was Marianna.

Some time ago, when the icecreams were not so expensive, a ten-year old boy went to an icecream parlour. While sitting at the table, he asked the waitress, "How much does a sundae cost?" "50 cents", she replied.
以前,冰淇淋还不是这么贵的时候,一个10岁的男孩到一家雪糕店。他坐下,问雪糕店的服务员:“一份圣代多少钱?” “50美分”服务员告诉他。

The boy took out his money from his pocket and began counting it.

“Well, how much does a simple icecream cost?”
There were other people waiting to be served, so the wairtress began to get a little impatience.
"35 cents!" she replied abruptly. The boy counted his money again and he said:"Please get me a simple icecream!"

The waitress served his icecream and his bill. The boy ate his icecream, payed his bill at the cash counter and left.
When the waitress went to clean the table she began to cry...for there, at the corner of the plate, were 15 cents...her tip.

The boy took the simple icecream instead of a Sundae so he could leave a tip for him.
