The House Of 1000 Mirrors By: Author Unknown


The House of 1000 Mirrors
By: Author Unknown

Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place 
known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little 
dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he 
arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway
of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears 
lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To 
his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other 
happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as 
his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 
great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the 
House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I 
will come back and visit it often." 

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite 
as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He 
slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he 
looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly 
looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and 
was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. 
As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible 
place, and I will never go back there again." 
All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of 
reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
