The Monkeys and Their Mother

The monkey, it is said, has two young ones at a birth. The mother fondles one and nurses it with the greatest affection and care, but hates and neglects the other. It happened once on a time that the young one that was caressed and loved was smothered by the too great affection of the mother, while the despised one grew up in spite of the neglect to which it was exposed.

The best intentions will not always ensure success.
