Humiliation #Inspirational Moral Stories

 

86. Humiliation

A lady in a gingham dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, went to meet the president of Harward university. But they were ignominiously snapped by the secretary, who said, “A meeting of two hours is going on; you can't disturb him during the meeting.” They both kept waiting for 2 hours. After sometime the president came and asked their purpose. The man said, “We are parents of that accomplished child who died one year ago. So we want to erect a memorial in his memory.” The president denied to give them place in the university. But the lady said, “Is that all it costs to start a university? Why don't we just start our own?” The president's face wilted in confusion and bewilderment. Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and went to California where they established the University that bears their name, Stanford University, a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.
