The Stars are not Forever
There was an astronomer who was in a habit of gazing at the stars every night, without looking at the ground where he put his feet. The result was that one night he fell into a hole while observing the stars in the sky above.
His cries attracted a few passers- by, who pulled him out of the pit and said to him, “Dear brother, how do you hope to discover what is up in heaven, when you do not even know what is under your nose?”
This made the astronomer come to reality, whereas others are still in the danger of facing it while running blindly to fulfill their life- long ambitions.
