The Boy and the Candies

posted in People |

A Boy put his hand into a pitcher full of candies. He grasped as many as he could possibly hold, but when he tried to pull out his hand, he was prevented from doing so by the neck of the pitcher.

Unwilling to lose his candies, and yet unable to withdraw his hand, he burst into tears and bitterly lamented his disappointment.

A bystander said to him, “Be satisfied with half the quantity, and you will easily draw out your hand.”

Moral: Do not attempt too much at once.
