The Boy and the Nettles (fable)

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.
