Two friends in the desert

Two friends wandered through the desert. However, during the walk, there was a dispute and the one struck the other in affect the face. The beaten one was hurt. Without saying a word, he knelt down and wrote the following words in the sand: "Today my best friend hit me"

They continued their journey and came after a short time into an oasis. There, the two decided to take a bath. The friend who had been beaten, suddenly stuck in the mud and almost drowned. But his friend saved him literally at the last second. After the friend who had almost drowned, had recovered, he took a stone and scratched into these words: "Today my best friend saved my life"

The friend who had struck the other and also rescued asked, amazed: "When I hurt you, you have your phrase written only in the sand, but now you carves the words in a stone. Why?" The other friend replied: "When someone has hurt or offended us, we should write it in the sand, so that the wind of forgiveness can erase it again. But when someone does something good for us, then we can perpetuate in a stone, so that no wind can ever extinguish ".
