                             The Fence
There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of
nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in
the back fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.
Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his
temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when the boy didnt lose his temper at all. He told his
father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail
each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the
young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You
have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will
never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just
like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't
matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal
wound is as bad as a physical one.
