This is a story between a tall man and a short man
One day,Bob was walking with his friend.  He was a tallest man in his village. he saw a very short man that no taller than a boy of 9. Dicky low was the shortest man that Bob and his friends had ever seen. Dicky was shorter than any of his friends but more intelligent than all of them. He was known in his village as the most intelligent man.
After they greeted each other, Bob said, “I don’t think you can reach the tip of my nose with your fingers, you’re so short, Dicky Low. But if you can, I will give you $20.”
Dicky replied, “Certainly, I can. I’m absolutely sure. That’s no matter for me. I have to admit that I’m short and I’m not denying that fact, but my hands are longer than yours. If you can touch my toes with your hands I’ll give you this 10 dollar bill right away.

The tall man laughted and stopped slowly to touch the short man’s toes. At the moment, Dicky touched Bob’s nose and said calmly, “I may be short but I know how to use my brain better than you. Please, give me the money you promised.

Value : from this story,I learn that the weaknesses in ourselves should not make us less confident, but how do we make that weakness become the excess that make us different from others.

Do not be arrogant like Bob ^_^
