Mark Twain was a famous American writer. He wrote many humorous stories. He also liked to play jokes on his friends. One day, a friend of his lost his money and asked Twain for help. Twain said, “I am sorry. But I have very little money with me. I don’t have enough money to pay for both your ticket and my own.” His friend was very sad.
Twain said, “you can get on the train with me. When the conductor comes to collect tickets, you can lie under my seat.” The friend finally agreed. Later, when the conductor came, Twain showed him two tickets and said to the conductor, “my friend is a very interesting man. When he rides on a train, he doesn’t like to sit on the seat. He prefers to lie under the seat.”
Everybody then looked at the man under the seat and laughed at him loudly.
Fool or lost?
A: Hello, boy. Where does this road go?
B: It doesn’t go anywhere. It always stays here.
A: How far is it to the next town?
B: I don’t know. I never measured it.
A: (angrily) What do you know? You seem very strange. You are a big fool.
B: Maybe I am a fool, but at least I’m not lost.

Salaam ! Greetings from a school teacher deep down in South India !Your website is wonderful.You have covered every possible aspect and made it a joy to learn Farsi. I teach Mughal History and when I visit or see pictures of their forts, tombs and palaces I have always been curious to know what was written on it. And since Persian was the Court language there is so much I will be able to read once I learn Farsi. And once I am fluent I have promised myself a trip to Iran one day , Insha Allah .
