Aesop – The Boy and the NettlesFollow
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.
