The Starfish Story...Inspirasi Untuk Guru

Peperiksaan akhir program matrikulasi akan bermula lebih kurang 3 minggu lagi....aku cukup takut sebenarnya. Takut dengan persediaan pelajar yang masih ntah apa2.....Masih tak tau hujung pangkal...masih bermimpi.... Entahlah....Kadang2 aku rasa cukup sedih dan terkilan. Setiap kuiz yg diberikan masih ramai lagi yang dapat markah yang teruk...walaupun diulang soalan yang sama...yang telah dibincangkan sebelum ini....berkali-berkali.

Walau apa pun aku doakan semua pelajar akan dapat keputusan yang cemerlang dalam peperiksaan nanti. Aku akan cuba buat apa yang termampu....  " Never never give up! .



Cerita ni aku kutip dari internet....moga dapat dijadikan inspirasi untuk semua yang bergelar guru....

The Starfish Story
adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."

It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can. ~Sydney Smith
