The house of 1000 mirrors

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?

PS: I got this wonderful story from a book. And I just loved it!!!
