When A Lizard Can, Why Can't We?
This is, I'm told, a true story that happened in Japan.
Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall.
When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of it's feet.
He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was first built !!!
The lizard has survived in such position for 5 years!!!!!!!!!!
In a dark wall partition for 5 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling.
Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 5 years without moving a single step--since it's foot was nailed!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating.
Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth.
Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply.
For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 5 years...
Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can't.
