The real Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.”  Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:

                            1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
                            2. Taj Mahal
                            3. Grand Canyon
                            4. Panama Canal
                            5. Empire State Building
                            6. St. Peter’s Basilica
                            7. China’s Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl, if she was having trouble with her list.
The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind
because there were so many.”
The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.”
The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:

                            1. to see
                            2. to hear
                            3. to touch
                            4. to taste
                            5. to feel
                            6. to laugh
                            7. and to love.”

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for granted are truly wondrous!!
If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the Rich should be dancing on the streets. But only Poor Kids do that.
If power ensures security,then top Officials should walk unguarded. But people who live on roadside feel more secure.
If beauty brings ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages.  But they have one of the worst relationships.

Thats why… Live simply…Walk humbly
Love genuinely!!!
