An Old Man Saw A Scorpion

An old man saw a scorpion
drowning and decided to
pull it out from the water.
He calmly extended his
hand to reach the
creature. When he did, the
scorpion stung him. With
the effect of the pain, the
old man let go the
creature and it fell back
into the water.
The man realizing that the
scorpion was drowning
again, got back and tried
to rescue it but then again
it stung him. He let go of it
A young boy standing by,
approached the old man
and said,”excuse me Sir,
you are going to hurt
yourself trying to
save the evil-vicious
creature, why do you
insist? Don’t you realize
that each time you try to
help the scorpion, it stings
The man replied, “the
nature of the scorpion is to
sting and mine is to help. It
will not change in helping
the scorpion.”
So the man thought for a
while and used a leaf from
a nearby tree and pulled
the scorpion out from the
water and saved it’s life.


Do not change your
nature. If someone hurts
you, just take precautions.
Some pursue happiness
while others create it. Let
your conscience be your
guide in whatever you do.


When life presents you
with a thousand reasons to
cry, show it that you have
a thousand reasons or
more to smile. More
importantly, always be the
reason for the smile!
