275 - 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."

To the insolent one, the disrespectful one, or delinquent, must be demonstrated whenever the authority prevails over him.
