The Flea and the Man

views


A man, very much annoyed with a flea, caught him at last, and said, "Who ate you and who dare to feed on my limbs, and to cost me so much trouble in catching you?"

The flea replied, rt O my dear sir, pray spare my life, and destroy me not, for I cannot possibly do you much harm' The man, laughing, replied, "Now you shall certainly die by my own hands, for no evil, whether it be small or large, ought to be tolerated,"

Man is created impatient and we humans start to despair with petty problems becoming thankless and desperate. Only those will succeed who are patient, and they number very few.
