Hope for the Weak

For many in this world, their superiority and greatness is mostly based on outward appearances.

Making It Fit

Jigsaw puzzles and Marvin were a born match. There isn’t a puzzle around that he will not try to tackle. While he is fond of the five-hundred-piece variety, he’ll just as easily jump at a chance to complete one that contains a thousand or even two thousand pieces. He works on these like some people…

Forget Those Things Which Are Behind You

John and his rival, Jose, were avid runners. Both of them were so superior in their class for long distance runs that most marathons had become easy challenges for them. John was very muscular, but Jose had the edge in speed. At six foot eleven, Jose was not only very lean and tall, but also…
