A Boy was allowed to put his hand into a pitcher to get some nuts.
But he took so much that he could not take his hand out.
There he stood, not wanting to give up a single nut and yet unable to get any.
Frustrated and sad, he began to cry.
"My boy" said his mother. "be happy with half of the nuts you have,
and you can easily get your hand out. You may have more nuts another day."
Lesson: Do not attempt too much at once.
