    Here's an interesting story which I'm sure would inspire everyone.

    The Story :
    His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer.
    One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry
    for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
    There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy,
    screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from
    what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

    The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's
    sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman
    stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the
    boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
    "I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."
    "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish
    farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the
    farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.
    "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
    "Yes," the farmer replied proudly.

    "I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of
    education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything
    like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will
    be proud of." And that he did.

    Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time,
    graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went
    on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander
    Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

    Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from
    the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved his life this time?

    The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name?
    Sir Winston Churchill.

    Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
    Work like you don't need the money.
    Love like you've never been hurt.
    Dance like nobody's watching.
    Sing like nobody's listening.
    Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
