Scorpion

The old man, a sage, was sleeping beneath a tree near a pool. As he awoke, he saw a scorpion floating helplessly in the water. Without thinking, he stretched out to rescue the drowning creature. As soon as he touched it, the scorpion stung his hand. As he cried out in pain, a passer by, who had seen the incident, said: "That was a foolish thing to do, old man. Why would you risk your life for the sake of an ugly, natural killer like a scorpion?” The old man turned and looked at the stranger, and calmly replied: "My friend, it may be the scorpion's nature to sting, but that does not change my nature to save."
