A father and his 3 sons

A father told his 3 sons when he sent them to university: "I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, to show your appreciation, as a token, please put $1000 into my casket when I die."

And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father's time had come and they saw him in the casket, they remembered his wish.

First, it was the doctor who put 10 $100 bills onto his father's chest. Then came the financial planner, who also put $1000 onto his father's chest.

Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer's turn. He took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3000, put it into the casket and took the $2000 cash.

He later went on to become a member of Congress.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
