The Story of the Pencil

The Story of the Pencil

Storyboard Text

  • Yes, it is about you. But this pencil is more important than that.
  • What are you writing, Grandma? Is is about us? Is it about me?
  • But, why? I cannot see anything special about that pencil. It's just any other pencil.
  • That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.
  • First quality: you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.
  • Second quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he’s much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.
  • Third quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.
  • ‘Fourth quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you
  • Finally, the pencil’s fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. in just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action
  • I see! Thank you grandma!
