This found note gets better and better the more I read it. The use of fruits in the analogy, the sincerity of the author, the adjectives used…It just makes me wonder what took place in order for the author to write such wonderful prose and post it anonymously. Also what went through his mind to use the fruits (any fruit in that case) as his examples. What a funny, off the wall note…but I would say it’s advice rings true. So which will you be, The World’s Finest Plum, or a Second-Rate Banana?
You should learn that you cannot be loved by all people. you can be the finest PLUM in the world. Ripe, juicy, succulent, a postive delight.
But you must remember there will be people, who do not like plums.
You must understand that if you are the World’s Finest Plum, and someone you like does not like plums, you have a choice of becoming a banana. BUT you must be warned that if you choose to become a banana, you will be a second-rate banana, but you can always be the Best Plum.
You must realise that if you choose to be a second rate banana, you have to remember that there will be people who don’t like bananas.
Furthermore, you can spend your life trying to become the best banana (which is impossible if you are a plum). Or, you can seek again to be the Best Plum.
