about this story

Plato once said, "Never discourage anyone... who is making a progress no matter how slow." Being bigger than everyone doesn't make you the strongest, and being the smallest doesn't make you the weakest. just like these pots, they are all different in shapes, and colors, but they're still pots, all of them are useful and they all serve their own purposes. Same with walking to a path that is different from someone. Seeing them walk in a rough path while you're walking in a smooth, and straight path, doesn't mean they will never succeed in crossing the rough path they took. Every step they will make might be slow, but they're still making a movement. They might lose their balance along the way, but that doesn't mean they will never get back on their feet again. Even the sun goes down, but it comes back up. Even the trees has to go through fall, but leaves will soon grow back again from the bareness of trees, and all will be alright in time. Leaves don't grow fast, and it's alright. Watching and appreciating the trees growing its leaves is beautiful. And so is appreciating someone's progress, no matter how slow.
