Shy by nature, Sheep are not the most practical of people and, although well-mannered, they may occasionally suffer from “hoof-in-mouth disease” by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Still, with their considerable charm and innocence, Sheep never lack for protective friends and admirers. This is especially so among family members, to whom they are strongly attached. In fact, Sheep are traditionally paired with the Western zodiac sign of Cancer, who are also never happier than being at home in familiar surroundings with the people they love. Outwardly dreamy and starry-eyed as young adults, Sheep can be inwardly anxious, insecure, and usually find day-to-day living difficult and puzzling. As such, they often take refuge in religion, astrology or the occult. In love or friendship, they are at first wary of others’ motives and usually timid about revealing their true natures. Gaining a Sheep’s trust takes time, but once they have been won over, they may become the most ardent of companions.
Typically surrounded by beautiful things, Sheep have a love of creature comforts and are almost always elegantly dressed, but can become overly reliant on appearances. Conversely, Sheep people also have an innate affinity for natural settings and are also deeply content when getting their hands dirty messing about in the garden! In the workplace, Sheep are not overly ambitious, but once they find a position that makes use of their considerable talents, they are passionate about what they do. In business, Sheep tend to be highly disorganized, but they usually enjoy great success as artists, actors, gardeners, interior designers, daycare workers, pediatricians or grade school teachers. Download MP3Our story today is called “Luck. It was written by Mark Twain. Here is Shep O’Neal with the story. Storyteller: I was at a dinner in London given in honor of one of the most celebrated English military men of his time. I do not want to tell you his real name and titles.
I will just call him Lieutenant General Lord Arthur Scoresby. I cannot describe my excitement when I saw this great and famous man. There he sat, the man himself, in person, all covered with medals. I could not take my eyes off him. He seemed to show the true mark of greatness. His fame had no effect on him. The hundreds of eyes watching him, the worship of so many people did not seem to make any difference to him.
Next to me sat a clergyman, who was an old friend of mine. He was not always a clergyman. During the first half of his life he was a teacher in the military school at Woolwich. He meant, of course, the hero of our dinner. This came as a shock to me. I could not have been more surprised if he has said the same thing about Nepoleon, or Socrates, or Solomon. But I was sure of two things about the clergyman.
And, his judgment of men was good. Therefore, I wanted to find out more about our hero as soon as I could. Some days later I got a chance to talk with the clergyman, and he told me more. About forty years ago, I was an instructor in the military academy at Woolwich, when young Scoresby was given his first examination. I felt extremely sorry for him. He was a nice, pleasant young man. It was painful to see him stand there and give answers that were miracles of stupidity.
