Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
There was a young man walking down the street and happened to see an old man sitting on his porch. Next to the old man was his dog, who was whining and whimpering. The young man asked the old man “What’s wrong with your dog” The old man said, “He’s laying on a nail”. The young man asked, “Laying on a nail?, Well why doesn’t he get up?” The old man then replied, “It’s not hurting bad enough.” Les Brown, Live Your Dreams.
