What a wonderful quote... thanks for sharing.

(Wisdom Seeking) Barry

Thanks for repeating this story. Love De Mello's profound wisdom. "You have to understand, my dears, that the shortest distance between truth and a human being is a story."
Great dose of wisdom every week. Keep them coming.


What a nice way to begin my Friday. Thank you!
Storyline so simple. Reflection-so true.

Story telling - very effective not only to get people to listen- but to encourage the opposite person to share some of his/her own.

PS: The sub titles: Reflection and Story line- are switched. :) Was that intentional? To see if readers are paying attention? or to see who would take the risk and tell the Emperor? :)

Good story.


The power of storytelling is really amazing. It can move the unmovable. As observation, some great priests use storytelling to make their points across when expounding the homily. Same with great mentors like Ken Blanchard.

So, once a upon a time... ;-)


This is so true (no pun intended). Thanks for sending

I now know, in light of events in the past couple of days, this story line is useful for me personally and professionally….awesome.
