Peter's uncle lived in the country. Once Peter went to stay

with him for a few weeks. Whenever they went for a walk

or for a drive in the car and they passed somebody, his uncle

waved. Peter was surprised, and said, 'Uncle George, you

know everybody here. Where did you meet them all?'

'I don't know all these people,' said his uncle.

'Then why do you wave to them?' asked Peter.

'Well, Peter,' answered his uncle, 'when I wave to some

one and he knows me, he is pleased. He continues his journey

with a happier heart. But when I wave to someone and he

doesn't know me, he is surprised and says to himself, "Who

is that man? Why did he wave to me?" So he has something

to think about during the rest of his journey, and that makes

his journey seem shorter. So I make everybody happy.'
