*(5)*
A New York City taxi driver arriveS at the final stop for his shift. He honked. After waiting a few minutes, he honked again. Because it was his last stop, he considered pulling away. Instead, he put the car in park and walked up to the door.
He knocked.
He heard an elderly voice, “Just a minute.”
He then heard the shuffling of bags moving across the floor. Then the door opened.
It was a small woman in her 90’s with a soft smile wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it. As she answered, the taxi driver caught a glimpse inside the house. It looked as if no one had lived there for years. All the furniture was covered in sheets, no clocks on the wall, and no knickknacks on the counters.
“Could you carry my bag?“ the lady asked.
The cab driver walked her slowly down the steps of the front porch to the cab.
Once in the cab, the lady handed the driver an address and asked, “Could you drive through downtown?”
“It’s not the shortest way,” The driver answered.
“I’m in no hurry. I don’t mind,” she said. “I’m on my way to hospice…”
The driver and passenger shared a quick glimpse in the rearview mirror, enough for her to see his concern and continue:
“I don’t have any family left. The doctor says I don’t have very long.”
The driver quietly reached over and shut off the meter then asked, “What route would you like me to take?”
For the next two hours, they drove through the city. She showed the driver where she once worked, the neighborhood where she and her husband first lived, a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom when she was a girl. There were a few parts of town she asked the driver to slow down and she would sit, staring into the darkness, saying nothing.
After a couple hours, she suddenly said, “I’m tired. Let’s go now.”
They drove in silence to the address she had given him. When they arrived, two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as they pulled up. They must have been expecting her.
The driver opened the trunk to take out the suitcase. As he shut the trunk, she was already in a wheelchair.
“How much do I owe you?” She asked, reaching into her purse.
“Nothing,” said the driver.
“You have to make a living,” she answered.
“There are other passengers,” he responded.
Almost without thinking, the driver bent and gave the lady a hug. She held on tightly.
“You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,” she said. “Thank you.”
The driver gave a final squeeze of the lady’s hand and the two turned to go their separate ways. As he got in the car and glanced over to her, the door was shut.
He didn’t pick up any more passengers That night. In fact, he could hardly speak.
What if that woman had gotten an angry or impatient driver? What if she got someone who refused to get out and go to her door? Refused to take the time driving around the city?
The taxi driver couldn’t shake the feeling that this single moment may be one of the most important moments of his life.

Chairman, Panel of Judges. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am here to speak against the motion that states that the youths of today are more interested in the pursuit of pleasure than in academic work. It is not true that the youths of today are interested in pleasure than academic work. I will like to say that everyone likes pleasure one way or the other and so are the youths, but I put it to you that in spite of this fact, the youths take their academic work seriously than they take pleasure.

First and foremost, I want to say categorically that in schools, both in secondary schools and higher institutions, the youths think about their academics before they think about pleasure. Everyone wants to pass his examinations and make his family proud. Nobody wants to fail and be put to shame or be asked to withdraw. This makes the youths to work hard on their academic work than pleasure.

I will also like us to look at the number of people who write the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board Examination every year for placement in our universities. Last year, about one million candidates, who are mostly youths, sat for the examination. I now ask you my audience, if the youths of today do not take academic works seriously, why would so many people write JAMB examination even when some of these youths had written it about six to seven times and insist on writing it. It is because they want to gain admission into the university and further their education.

The youths of today will by dint of hard work go to school to get good degrees. Where then is the pursuit of pleasure that is being alleged? Without seriousness at school, the youths do know that they can’t achieve success. Therefore, they take their academic work seriously as there will be time for pleasure later. The youths of today also desire to be recognized and reckoned with in the society. They know that they can not become prominent Nigerians in future unless they work very hard in their studies. Therefore they want to work hard on their academic work so as to get good grade at school in order not to depend on their parents or anybody in future and be able to take care of their families without difficulty. They know that this can’t be achieved without hard work.

Today, many companies will not employ anybody who does not pass with distinction in his academics. Therefore, those who do not pass their examinations won’t be employed. This means that all the years they spend in school have been wasted. The youths of today are aware of this crucial point which makes them to work hard on their academic work. They do not pursue pleasure as my opponent will want us to believe.

I hope that with these few points of mine. I have been able to convince you that the youths of today are interested in their academic work more than in the pursuit of pleasure

Dear Yomi,

I learnt through uncle Adeolu’s letter that you are got into a fight. I was depressed and unhappy when I read in your bad conducts and behaviour. You really have disappointed me. I know that our parents will also be very disappointed n you. I don’t expect somebody of your background and up-bringing to be fighting in school.
The implication of your unruly behaviour is very grievous. You just have to realise the fact that you are toying with your future. I want you to know that playing truant and keeping bad company will definitely affect your education in the sense that you won’t be able to know what you are taught in the classroom. For instance. you cannot understand or know what is taught once you are not there. The Bible says: “bad company corrupts good manners” It is obvious that keeping bad company will influence you to smoke cigarette and take hard drugs.

You may even be influenced to join secret cults. All these can lead to your destruction.
In addition, Yomi, do you want to lose your life? Keeping bad company may lead you to end your life violently and tragically too. If you don’t want to end your life that way. you have to change. You will not be able to finish your education if you are expelled from school as a result of being a truant. I am sure that our parents will not like you to be a drop-out. If you become one, how will you justify the years you have spent in school? All those years will be wasted and when your age mates accomplish many things academically, you will be a failure and disappointment to yourself and the family.
However, I want you to turn a new leaf. You know that you’re the only male child of the family. You can’t afford to waste your time and the resources being spent on you Having said this. I plead with you to desist from playing truant and keeping bad company. You have to behave well so that the younger ones will be able to emulate you. Finally, I want you to do the right things at the right time as an adage says “make hay while the sun shines.” So, you have to stop playing truant and keeping bad company. I want you to pay less attention to frivolous things such as watching uneducative films, going to disco parties and running away from school when you are supposed to be in the classroom. I want you to devote enough time to reading both at home and in school while making sure that you go to school everyday. Once you yield to this advice. your success is assured.

_PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE_

A certain young man walked into a restaurant and after perusing through the menu, ordered for some food. After about 20 minutess a group of guys walked in and ordered for their food too.
To the dismay of the young man, these guys got served first.

He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him there. He felt he was being mocked. He contemplated leaving. But he had waited soo long. Unable to take it anymore, he called a waiter.

The waiter calmly told him: “yours sir is a special order, being prepared by the chief chef himself. Their orders were prepared hurriedly by students on attachement because the top chefs are busy with yours. That’s why they came first. Please have some juice as you wait”.

He calmed down and waited. Shortly after, his meal was served by 6 waiters.
Unknown to him, the owner of the restaurant (who happened to be an old long lost friend of his) had seen him coming and wanted to surprise him and had made changes to his simple meal to make it a five star meal.

The party at the other table were shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal.
So it is with this life!! Some people are ahead of you and eating now, laughing at you about how they know people, how they are well connected and how they’re blessed, have money and how they’re enjoying life because of it.

Do not worry!! The owner of the world has seen you and doesn’t want to give you a simple meal like those laughing at you. You’re waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only chief chefs prepare them.
Take heart today!! Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes that laughing party will be silenced for good

Patience is a Virtue.
A young woman suspected her husband was cheating on her. They got into incessant fights, sometimes he failed to come home and even when he did come home he would neither eat her food nor share her bed. Because of this, the woman consulted a renowned medicine man and pleaded with him to help her make a charm or potion that would help her husband love her again. The wise old medicine man asked her some questions about her husband and took note of the answers she gave. After that he consulted with the oracle and then he said to her:
“The oracle says only the milk of a lactating Lioness can be used to prepare this potion you desire. Once you bring this milk, I will use it to prepare a potion you will put in his food, once he eats it, you will become irresistible to him, just like a lion cub cannot resist its mother’s milk.” He added, “When you go to look for this milk, you must go alone or the milk will not work as it should.”
The woman thanked the medicine man and left, but she was confused and unhappy.” How would I a mere woman even find a lioness, not to talk of a lactating one, without help?” even if I found one how would I approach it knowing that a lioness with young cubs would be extremely hostile and dangerous?” “Is my husband even worth that level of sacrifice?” These were thoughts that ran through her mind for days, but in the end, her love for her husband won out. She resolved to try and find a lactating lioness, no matter what it would cost her. For weeks she roamed the deep dark recesses of the jungle, where even veteran hunters would think twice about going, in search of a lioness. It was a traumatizing and unpleasant experience, she was beaten by rain and sunshine, she was chased by wild animals, she endured colds and fevers, but she refused to give up.

At last one day she found a lioness that had just given birth to four cubs. However the problem was how to get close to the beast without being attacked. So she went home, killed a goat and brought it back for the animal. At first the animal was wary and defensive, but in the end its hunger won out and it attacked the food. Every day the woman would bring some meat for the animal; the animal would eagerly eat the food but still would not allow the woman to get close to it. The woman was not dismayed by this and she patiently continued to bring the meat for the beast. After a seemingly interminable time of trying, the animal started to trust her. The lioness would allow the woman to stroke it and it would lick her face like a large dog. Its cubs would roll all over her and lick her face. In time the lioness even learnt to wag its tail anytime the woman came around. One day the woman came as usual with the meat and while the lioness ate, the woman placed a calabash under its teats and was able to get as much milk as she wanted. Finally after months of hard work she was able to go back to the medicine man’s house with her prize.

The old man marvelled at the patience and endurance that the young woman displayed to accomplish the task and he said to her: “the reason why I asked you to bring the milk of a lioness was not to make any potion for you, I only wanted to see how much you were willing to give to get your husband back. I know that in order to get this milk, you patiently studied the animal, tried to understand its habits and endured its hostility in order to win its trust. If you can show this level of patience with your husband, all your problems will become a thing of the past. I am sorry for deceiving you before but there is no potion that can do what you wish. By your actions you have shown that you are capable of achieving your desires.”

The woman was disappointed that that the old man could not give her the potion she desired in spite of her efforts, but she took his advice, and became more patient and understanding with her husband just like she had been with the lioness. To her surprise, he changed as well, he stopped keeping late nights, the fights stopped and he no longer refused to eat her food or share her bed. The woman finally realized that there is no charm like patience and endurance. With it one can achieve the hardest of aims, and with it one can tame the wildest and most hostile of animals─ or men.
