Is there a writer in u? Or are you in a mood to read some short interesting stories? Here's the Story Section for all tastes.

In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record
audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The
executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of
musicians,one executives said, "We don't like their sound. Groups of
guitars are on the way out."

The group was called The Beatles.


In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modelling Agency,
told modeling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial
work or else get married."

She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.


In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, Fired a Singer
after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son.You
ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis


When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not
ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a
demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, "That's an amazing
invention, but who would ever want to use one of them?"


When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000
experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it
felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the
light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process."


In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his
idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country.
They all turned him down. In 1947 - after seven long years of
rejections! He finally got a tiny company in Rochester, New York, the
Haloid Company, to purchase the rights to his invention - an electrostatic
paper-copying process.

Haloid became Xerox Corporation we know today.


Wilma Rudolph was the 20th of 22 children. She was born prematurely
and her survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old, she contacted
double pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralysed left
leg. At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent
on and began to walk without it.By 13 she had developed a rhythmic
walk, which doctors said was a miracle.

That same year she decided to become a runner.She entered a race and
came in last. For the next few years every race she entered, she came
in last.

Everyone told her to quit, but She kept on running. One day she
actually won a race. And then another.From then on she won every race
she etered.

Eventually this little girl, who was told she would never walk again, went
on to win three Olympic gold medals.


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through
experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision
cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved. You gain strength,
experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to
look fear in the face....

You must do the thing you cannot do. And remember, the finest steel
gets sent through the hottest furnace.

Champion is not one who never fails, but one who NEVER QUITS.....
