"It is said that there are four kinds of horses."
"The first kind of horse starts running the moment it sees the shadow of the whip. The second kind is less sensitive. It does not run when it sees the shadow of the whip. It starts running when it hears the sound of the whip cracking."
"The third kind is even less sensitive. It does not run when it sees the shadow of the whip or when it hears the sound of the whip cracking. It runs when it feels the touch of the whip on its skin."
"The fourth kind is the dullest of the lot. Its response is even slower than that of the third kind of horse. It starts running only when it gets a lash and feels the pain."
"Human beings too vary from each other as far as their responsiveness is concerned."
"At one extreme are the people who have the spontaneous urge to do what needs doing right away. At the other extreme are those who always put off things as they have some sort of resistance to them."
(P. S. Wasu in 'The Fine Print of Life,' p. 61 Harper)
