Face the Dangers Boldly
Short Story on “Face the Dangers Boldly”
At once the young boy started gathering berries. He was thinking of enjoying them at leisure. Just then he was stung sharply by a nettle. Feeling pinched, he smarted under acute pain. Soon a rash appeared on his hand.
The mother smiled and caressing her son, replied, “They stung you because you only touched them lightly. Had you held them firmly, they won’t have hurt you. You cannot get anything without facing dangers. Every rose has some thorns to protect it. So, learn to grasp the nettles, if you want berries.”
