Dear Business Partners,
A professor of philosophy
started his lecture by filling a glass with
stones of about 5 cm diameters. He asked his
students to tell their opinions whether the
glass was full. Their answer was yes. Then
the professor took the glass full of stones
and poured small pebbles in it. As soon as
the pebbles filled up the spaces in between
the stones, the students stated that the glass
was really full now. So the professor took
a box with full of sand and poured the sand
into the glass. Naturally the sand filled
up all the small available spaces in the glass.
“And now” – started the professor his speech
– “you will realize that your life is the
same. The stones represent the important elements,
your families, your wives, husbands, your
health and your children. In case you would
loose everything else, your life would still
be complete. The pebbles are the things that
still count, like your jobs, houses, your
cars. The sand is everything else, the minor
things of your lives. In case you fill in
the sand first into the glass, there will
not be place remaining for the pebbles and
for the stones. It would be the same in your
lives. If you waste your energy on minor things,
you will not have time for the things that
are really important. You should better pay
attention to those things that are essential
to your happiness. Play with your children.
Take care of your health. Take your partner
dancing. You will always have time to work,
to clean up your rooms, to invite guests.
At first you have to pay attention to the
stones that really matter. You have to set
up priorities. Everything else is only the
your ever thought why it is so difficult to
spend time on positive or on funny things
nowadays in our world that is full of stress?
What are the cause and the effect? I believe
that the effect is the stress and it is the
humour and the laugh that can help us to avoid
it. In case we are able to see the things
as a spectator, we can cut out the part of
stress from our lives. However, even if our
lives are full of stress, it would be silly
to leave out happy moments from the every
days. They might help us to realize
how positive our situation is.
We are worrying about the invoices we receive,
however many people are not even entitled
to receive invoices as they are homeless.
We are worrying about our overweighs and at
the same time many people do not get food
at all. We are worrying about our children
and many people do not have kids. This list
could be long. But let us forget the troubles
for some time and cheer up, let us smile,
and make others laugh, too. Let us realize
that our world is not so terrible at all.
Have you ever thought about these things:
WHY our pizza arrives earlier than the ambulance
WHY we have to register ourselves at a future
teller in advance? She should know automatically
that we would come to her!
WHY do people order a double cheese burger
and a big French fries with a diet Coke?
WHY we have to use the START menu to close
WHY does the citric acid contain artificial
aroma while the dish washing liquids contain
WHY do we wash our towels if we are clean
anyway when we use them?
WHAT is your reaction when you see that a
protected animal is eating a protected plant?
HOW the signs “Do not step on the grass” are
placed in the middle of a field?
WHY the word “lerövidítebbítendő” (in Hungarian
it means: “to make it shorter”) is so long,
and why it is so difficult to pronounce it?
WHY the 24 hours opened shops have locks on
Dear Business Partners,
Do you know that at the
time of conquest (when the Hungarian tribes
settled on the land of Hungary in the last
years of the 9th century) only
the Greeks and the Romans had their own use
written records? When the Hungarians arrived
to the Carpathian Basin we already had our
own use of written literature of 1700
Do you know that we understand
the text of Ómagyar Mária-siralom (the Hungarian
funeral sermon from the end of 12th
century)? Shakespeare dramas can be understood
for even a well educated English person only
with the use of a dictionary as the English
language has been changed such a lot in the
previous 400 years. Hungarian language has
maintained the great part of its grammar and
its vocabulary because it was not willing
to melt into the big language whirling.
Do you know that the Hungarian
Institute of Musical Sciences registered 200
thousand Hungarian folk songs from which 100
thousand have already been published? In Germany
that has the population of 80 million people
only 6 thousand folks songs have been collected.
Do you know that Europe
had not known how to cook the meat before
the Hungarians settled in the Carpathian Basin?
At that time Europe had not known how to use
folks and spoon either. Europeans used to
eat fried meat with both hands and with knives.
We introduced our special seasoning techniques,
slicing, boiling together with spices. We
introduced the hot flavor next to the already
existing sweet, salty, sour and bitter tastes.
Do you know that people
in Europe do not wear toga today because Hungarians
introduced trousers, the coat (kazak) and
the long jacket (kaftán). While European people
wore sandals, boots and moccasins we introduced
the shoes with three-quartered long heels.
Moreover, even the underwear got into this
part of the world with the help of the Hungarians.
Think about Scottish people for example; if
someone would like to get dressed in traditional
Scottish clothes today, he will not take on
underwear under the kilt.
Do you know that Dutch
has been cultivating tulip for 400 years,
and Hungarians for 3000 years? Despite of
that, Nederland is called the homeland of
tulip. The gene centre of the only European
tulip species (Tulipa Hungarica) is located
in the Carpathian Base.
Do you know that the second
written state constitution in the world is
ours? The first one is from Iceland from the
year 720, and the second one is King Saint
Stephens admonitions to his son Imre Archduke
from the year 1010. (King Saint Stephen is
the founder of the Hungarian state who was
crowned in the year 1000.)
Do you know that Austria
and Germany took over renaissance, as an artistic
style from Hungary?
Do you know that the irrigation
and the crop rotation (convertible husbandry)
were also introduced by the Hungarians in
this part of the world?
be proud! You have the reason to be that.
This can give you strength and confidence.
This can be a basis for us, and we can act
without any fear anytime if needed.
It is difficult but at the same time it is
good to be Hungarian, and it is not impossible
1791 – 1860,
was a Hungarian politician, theorist and writer,
one of the greatest statesmen of the Hungarian
Dear Business Partners,
I am not fan of sending
circular letters, e-mails, especially if they
are about promises and curses, like sending
back the e-mail within 12 and half minutes
to 18 and half persons will guarantee for
me 3 new friends, 186 thousand Euro and a
Ferrari, but in case I do not act so, my feet
will be amputated, I will go bankruptcy, and
everyone I know will be dead. I believe this
is ridiculous and disgusting at the same time.
However, some of the stories sent by such
circular e-mails are really nice, like the
one below. I have not checked this story so
I do not judge it; I think such anecdotes
have to be enjoyed as they are, either they
have happened or not, because the main point
is not the question whether they are real
stories but that they could have even happened.
And especially what we can learn from them.
The man was called Fleming,
and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day
while he was working hard to secure living
for his family he heard a cry for help from
a near swamp. He immediately threw his tools
away and ran to the swamp. He found a frightened
boy there who was sunk till his waist in the
black mud, and was trying to set himself free.
Fleming farmer saved the boy from the long
The following day a splendid
four wheeled carriage rolled in to the Scotchman`
s poor house. A natty nobleman got out from
the carriage and introduced himself as the
saved boy`s father.
“I would like to repay
your goodness to save my son`s life.” – he
said to the farmer.
“I can not accept any reward for what I have
done.” – replied the farmer and refused the
offer with a single wave with his hand. This
was the moment when the farmer`s own son appeared
in the door of the poor cottage.
“Is he your son?” – asked the nobleman.
“Yes” – answered the farmer proudly.
“Well, let`s make a deal then. Let me pay
and secure the same education to your son
as my son will receive. If your son is similar
to you, then he will be such a man that we
will both be proud of him.” – said the nobleman.
THIS IS THE WAY HOW IT
Fleming`s son learnt in
the best schools and finally took his degree
at the medical faculty of the St. Mary Hospital
in London. Soon the whole world learnt his
name; he was the outstanding Sir Alexander
Fleming, the inventor of the penicillin.
Years later the nobleman`s son, who escaped
from the mud, got a pneumonia. It was the
penicillin that saved his life.
And the name of the nobleman? He was Lord
Randolph Churchill. And his son?
Sir Winston Churchill.
Dear Business Partner,
It was a cold January morning;
a man stopped at a subway station in Washington
DC and started to play on his violin. He played
six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During
that time more than one thousand people went
through the station, most of them were on
their way to work in that rush hour.
Three minutes went by and
a middle aged man noticed that there was a
musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped
for a moment and then hurried away. A minute
later the violinist received his first dollar
tip; a woman threw the money in the fiddle-case
without stopping. A few minutes later, someone
leaned against the wall to listen to the music,
but after a short time the man looked at his
watch and hurried away.
The one who paid the most
attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother
tugged him along but the boy stopped to watch
the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard
and the child continued to walk turning his
head back all the time. This action was repeated
by several other children. All the parents,
without exception, forced them to move on.
In the 45 minutes while
the musician played, only 6 people stopped
and stayed for a while to listen to the music.
About 20 gave him money but they have not
even slowed. The violinist collected total
$32. When he finished playing and silence
took over, no one even noticed it. No one
applauded, nor was there any recognition.
Nobody knew that the violinist
was Joshua Bell, one of the best violinists
in the world, playing one of the most difficult
pieces ever written with his Stradivari violin
worth of 3.5 million dollars. Two days before
his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold
out at a theater in Boston and the seats average
This is a real story. Joshua
Bell playing incognito in the subway station
was organized by the Washington Post as a
social experiment to see if we are able to
recognize the beauty, if we stop to receive
it and to value the talent in a commonplace
environment at an inappropriate hour.
One of the possible conclusions
from this experience could be: If we do not
have a moment to stop and listen to one of
the best musicians in the world playing the
best music ever written, how many other things
are we missing day by day?

When the fisherman had
arrived home on his wooden boat he met a
marketing expert working in the fisherman´s
poor country. The marketing man asked the
fisherman why he had come home so early.
The man answered that he could have stayed
much longer but he had caught enough fish
to look after his family.
- And how about your
daily life? What do you do? - asked the
- Well, I go to the
sea for fishing. I play with my children.
When the weather is hot, we have a rest.
We have dinner together. Sometimes we come
together with our friends and play music
a little bit. - answered the fisherman.
The marketing man interrupted him.
- Look, I have an academic
certificate and studied a lot about these
kind of things. I want to help you. You
should stay much longer at the sea and fish
lot more. By doing so, you could earn more
money so you could buy bigger boat for yourself.
With that bigger boat you could make even
more money and in a short time you would
be able to establish a fleet of fishing
boat for yourself.
- And what´s then? -
butted in the fisherman.
- Then - continued the
chap his explanation - you could sell the
fish by yourself directly to the factories
instead of selling them through fish traders
or you could even launch your own fishworks.
You would have enough money to move from
this dirty old village to a big city where
you could operate your fish business from.
You`d be able to enter to the stock market
as well and be a millionaire
- And how much time
would it take from me to achive all this?
- asked the fisherman.
- Well, from about fifteen
to twenty years. - replied the marketing
- So what´s then if
I am a millionaire? - wondered the fisher.
- That is when your
life is getting to be interesting. - carried
on the professional. Arriving to this point
in your life, you could retire, leave the
wild urban life behind, and move to a distant
- And so? - raised the
fisherman his eyebrow.
- Living in a far tiny
village yould would have enough time to
go for fishing, play with your children,
and have a rest when the weather is hot,
having dinners together with your whole
family and sometimes come together with
your friends to play music.
