So here is the story that was shared by a lovely friend. Thank you, Josh C.!!!
(And I guess it's better to try and fail than not even try at all.)
Two monks were washing their bowls in the river when they noticed a scorpion that was drowning. One monk immediately scooped it up and set it upon the bank. In the process he was stung. He went back to washing his bowl and again the scorpion fell in. The monk saved the scorpion and was again stung. The other monk asked him, "Friend, why do you continue to save the scorpion when you know it's nature is to sting?"And then, just in case you are inspired by the night sky or just need a star to wish on...
"Because," the monk replied, "to save it is my nature."
