The first day,the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.Over the next few weeks,as he learned to control his anger.the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails to the fence.
第一天,男孩儿钉了37根钉子。接下来的几个星期,他学会了控制自己的脾气,每天钉的钉子数目逐渐减少了。他发现,控制脾气要比钉钉子容易些。

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.
