Good morning. How was your night? I found this wonderful piece and it’s worth sharing with you, here it goes:

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty transparent jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

Hello everyone !

I am trying  something new today which I hope all of you will enjoy. When I was a child , my older sister (who is an amazing storyteller), used to tell my brother and me really funny stories every night. Some of these stories are known around Turkey (especially the character in this particular story) but she always put her own spin on it.

I am not a great narrator like her but I wanted to share some funny stories with you that I learned from her when I was a kid. I hope these short stories will put a smile on your face :)


Nasreddin Hodja character was illustrated by Nazan Izmirlier.

Once upon a time  there was a man who  lived in Anatolia. Everybody called to him Nasreddin Hodja who is a wise-man and people came to him for advice in his village.

One day ,a neighbour came to him with a complaint about his neighbour and asked him;

-Aren’t I right , Hodja ?

After The Hodja listened to him carefully , Hodja said;

-Yes my dear neighbour , you’re right.

The neighbour was delighted by the response and left feeling happy thinking he was in the right.

A short while later the other neighbour came to the Hodja and made the same complaint and he asked;

-Aren’t I right, Hodja?

The hodja listened to the same matter carefully, then he said ;

-Yes , dear neighbour, you are right.

Hodja’s wife, having overheard the conversation between The hodja and neighbours, said to the Hodja after the second neighbour left ;

-You have listened to both of the men and told them both that they were right, Hodja, both fellow can’t be right.

The Hodja answered ;

-Yes dear wife, you are right too!
