Biker and the Lord


A Bridge To Far::: man was riding his Harley along a California highway, when suddenly the sky cleared above his head and in a booming voice, the Lord said: 'Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.' 


The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a  bridge to  Hawaii  so I can ride over anytime I want.'


The Lord said, 'Your request is materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific, and the concrete and steel it would take!


It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of  something that could possibly help mankind.'


The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'Lord, I wish that I and all men could understand women; I want  to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to  help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.'


The Lord replied, 'You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?'

"Happiness exists on earth, and it is won through prudent exercise of reason, knowledge of the harmony of the universe, and constant practice of generosity."
"Men are like the stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive."
"Like stones rolling down hills, fair ideas reach their objectives despite all obstacles and barriers. It may be possible to speed or hinder them, but impossible to stop them."
"Other famous men, those of much talk and few deeds, soon evaporate. Action is the dignity of greatness."

-Jose Marti
