|59. The Boy And The Nettles|
A Boy was stung by a Nettle. He ran home and told his mother, saying, "Although it pains me so much, I did but touch it ever so gently." "That was just it," said his mother, "which caused it to sting you. The next time you touch a Nettle, grasp it
boldly, and it will be as soft as silk to your hand, and not in the least hurt you."
Whatever you do, do with all your might.
一个小孩被苎麻所刺。 他跑回家里，告诉他的母亲说：「我只轻轻地碰了它一下，它就刺得我很痛呢。」 他的母亲说：「正因为这样，才会被它将你刺痛了。 下次如果你再去和苎麻接触，勇敢地将它一把握住，它就会柔软得和丝一样，在你手中，决不会伤害你的。」
