A snake in the fire............a fable!

This story reminds me of SFF.................. and all of us

When a man saw a snake dying and being burned to death he decided to take it out of the fire, but when he did, the snake bit him. The bite caused excruciating pain, the man released the snake and the reptile fell back into the fire and was burning again.

The man tried to pull it out again and again the snake bit him. Someone who was watching approached the man and said:
-*excuse me, but you're stubborn! Don't you understand every time you try to get the snake out of the fire, it's going to bite you?

The man replied:
-*the nature of the snake is biting, and that's not gonna change mine, which is to help.

So, with the help of a piece of iron, the man took the snake out of the fire and saved his life.

Do not change your nature if someone does harm you do not lose your essence; only take precautions.

Some persecute happiness, others believe it.

Worry more about your conscience than your reputation.

Because your conscience is what you are, and your reputation is what the rest of you think.

And what other people think, is not your problem...'s their problem.

"...we're all just walking each other home!"

I don't come here often any longer, for obvious reasons..........but when I read this story I felt compelled to post it here.........hoping that the reader will pause for consideration of the meaning of this fable, and perhaps take it to heart

"...we're all just walking each other home!"

WOW..... what truth that is.

The older I get, the less I care what people think of me, so the older I get, the more I enjoy life.
