Reviews The Story Above

In this life we ​​can be reborn into the arrogant shoes. Sometimes we feel we are superior to others. Privileges owned in terms of beauty, beauty, wealth, and others. Make us forget the purpose of ourselves created. The arrogant attitude of the shoe is only temporary. Regret will arise, after an event that reminds us to not be a neglectful person and forget the identity as a human being.

"Shoes are simply abandoned because of the circumstances, without realizing that the new leather boots hurt the feet of the male owner.The value of shoe excellence is simple: shoes are made to protect the feet and are comfortable to wear when juxtaposed with socks".

Life is interconnected with each other. We can not be an individual selfish person.
"Socks made to protect the feet are a pair of shoes".

Shoes think his sincerity more than socks, and shoes feel himself the most powerful. The humble attitude of socks who realize themselves for what is created

allows us to take messages from the above story.

In this life we ​​must be a useful and useful person for others. Because, in fact, when the time comes we will receive the time limit for us to be created.

Stop to feel superior and perfect from other human beings.

Useful in life and do not be a proud man.
