One day a young man sat on a park bench watching a squirrel in a tree. It was aiming for a limb so far above it that it looked like "a leap of suicide." Suddenly it jumped, missed, and landed on a branch several feet lower down. Immediately, it steadied itself, and got ready to jump again.

An old man sitting on the same bench said to him, "Funny, I’ve seen hundreds of ’em jump like that, even with dogs barking at them from the ground. And a lot of them miss. But I’ve never seen one get hurt trying." Then he added. "I guess they must think it’s better to take a risk, than spend your whole life where you don’t want to be."
