Its Nature

Its Nature

Why is a lamb always gentle?

Because that is its nature.

Does it cost the lamb any trouble to be gentle?

No.

Why not?

It is so beautiful and gentle.

Has a lamb to study to be gentle?

No.

Why does that come so easy?

It is its nature.

And a wolf – why does it cost a wolf no trouble to be cruel and to put its fangs into the poor sheep?

Because that is its nature.

It has not to summon up its courage; the wolf-nature is there.
