In a temple, many people show respects and make bows to the statue of Guanyin (a Bodhisattva).

One day, the temple was closed owing to maintenance, doorsill asked Guanyin statue "We are both made by marble, people step on me but show respect to you, life is so unfair."

Guanyin statue explained "Doorsill, don't foget 1000 years ago, we are the same marble, when workers carved the marble to be Guanyin statue, you couldn't suffer the pain and gave up ; I had to suffer a lot of pains while the carving yet I didn't give up, that's why people step on you but show respects to me now."

This story reminds you to face the difficulties bravely, as like as the Guanyin statue in this story.
