Once a lady from USA asked Swami Vivekananda to marry her as she was fascinated by his intellect and she wanted a child of such an intellect.
Swami Vivekananda paused for a while and said to that lady - My dear lady, I understand your desire. Marrying and bringing a child in this world and understanding whether it is an intelligent or not takes very long time. More over it is not guaranteed. Instead, to fulfill your desire immediately, I can suggest a guaranteed way. Take me as your child. You are my mother. Now your desire of having a child of my intellect is fulfilled. The lady was speechless. Great thinking.
MORAL: There is always another way to the situations we faced in day to day life. What requires utmost is to think differently and act that way. Than we will be called intellectual in real terms.
