“Tis the Nature of the Ant to Sting”
No one can understand why cer
tain insects are here to torment us.
But they are here. And they run true
to form. Man has intelligence to en
able him to shun them, for his own
protection. The ant is a stinging in
sect. Its nature is to sting. No one
should be surprised that he follows
There are human beings w'ith in
sect tendencies. Some are cross and
sharp and their words sting. These
characters should be shunned. If a
person should put an ant into his
bosom he has no right to complain
of the sting. And the same is true
if one will harbor a mean, cross,
stinging person. Better shun human
ants if you don’t want to feel the
sting of their sharp tongue and their
biting words. Remember, it is the
nature of the ant to sting.
