think of them like sandpaper.
They may scratch and hurt you a bit,
but in the end,
you end up polished
they end up useless.

about helping young people become clear-sighted,
balanced and strong?
No, a great many of them are on the lookout
for that which can seduce children and adolescents
whose instincts and desires are awakening,
and they hasten to satisfy these desires.
It begins with toys and then continues
with all sorts of objects or activities
which are altogether useless or even harmful.
Young people would themselves have no idea of such things
unless they saw them displayed everywhere
in shop windows and promoted by advertising.
First of all, they awaken material needs in the young
which cannot be satisfied, which leads to frustration,
and the desire to obtain dishonestly
what cannot be obtained honestly.
Then, by trying to convince them
that they absolutely need these objects and activities
in order to feel well and happy,
they turn them away from the true search
for happiness and the meaning of life.
if one day they have to suffer from the criminal behaviour which they have helped to create and nurture.

for story of "Girl and the Snake"
A young girl walking along a mountain path to her grandmother's house heard a rustle at her feet. Looking down, she saw a snake, but before she could react, the snake spoke to her.
"I am about to die," he said. "It's too cold for me up here, and I am freezing.
There is no food in these mountains, and I am starving.
Please put me under your coat and take me with you."
"No," the girl replied. "I know your kind. You are a rattlesnake.
And if I pick you up, you will bite me and your bite is poisonous."
"No, no," the snake said.
"If you help me, you will be my best friend. I will treat you differently."
The young girl sat down on a rock for a moment to rest and think things over.
She looked at the beautiful markings on the snake and she had to admit he was the most beautiful snake she had ever seen.
Suddenly, she said, "I believe you. I will save you.
All living things deserve to be treated with kindness."
She then reached over, put the snake gently under her coat and continued toward her grandmother's house.
Within a moment, she felt a sharp pain in her side. The snake had bitten her!
"How could you do this to me?" she cried.
"You promised that you would not bite me, and I trusted you!"
"You knew what I was when you picked me up," he hissed as he slithered away.
