Learning to apply this simple proverb could go a long way toward ending much of the stress in your life.
Children get excited when they see all the lights and hear the music of the various rides at an amusement park. The more adventurous among them want to ride everything.
It is especially difficult to explain to a five-year-old that they must be a certain height in order to ride one they have chosen. Of course, we try to explain it by saying, "You're not tall enough."
"But, I'm big, mommy."
"Yes, you're big all right, and very brave, but the sign says you must be THIS tall in order to ride. And you're not that tall yet. Maybe next year."
What a piece of work is a man,
How noble in Reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving
how express and admirable,
In action how like an Angel!
in apprehension how like a god, the beauty of the
world, the paragon of animals. and yet to me, what is
this quintessence of dust?
(Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Act II, Scene 2)
