The Boy and the Nettles

A BOY was stung by a Nettle. He ran home and told his Mother,

saying, "Although it hurts me very much, I only touched it

gently." "That was just why it stung you," said his Mother. "The

next time you touch a Nettle, grasp it boldly, and it will be

soft as silk to your hand, and not in the least hurt you."

Whatever you do, do with all your might.
