A young fawn once said to his Mother: “You are larger than a dog, and swifter, and more used to running; why, then, O Mother! are you always in such a terrible fright of the hounds? “Â
She smiled, and said: I know full well, my son, that all you say is true. I have the advantages you mention, but yet when I hear the bark of a single dog I feel ready to faint.
Moral : No arguments will give courage to the coward.
