In the middle of a beautiful city, there was a museum laid with beautiful marble tiles with a huge marble statue as a part of the display. Many people visited the museum and admired the beautifully crafted statue. One night, the marble tiles started talking to the marble statue.
Tiles: Hey statue, Don't you think that it is not fair that everybody comes here to admire you while ignoring and stepping on me. Both of us were born from the same cave and yet the world treats us so differently now. This is so unfair!
Marble Statue: Yes you are right my brother. But, do you still remember the day when the sculptor tried to work on you but you resisted his tools. Since you resisted his tools he couldn't work on you. When he decided to give up on you, he started working on me instead. I knew at once that I would be something different and unique after his efforts. I bore all the painful tools he used on me and allowed him craft me as he wanted!
Marble Tiles: But those tools were so painful.
Marble Statue: My brother, there is a price for everything in life. Since, you decided to resist and gave up half way, you can't blame anybody who steps on you now.!
