Once upon a time there was a wise man that used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had
the habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach he saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought that someone would dance on the beach. So he began to walk faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn?t dancing, instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it to the ocean. As he got closer he called out,” Good morning! What are you doing?”

“The sun is up and the tide(海浪) is going out. And if I don?t throw them in, they will die!”
“But, young man, don?t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can?t possibly make a difference!”
The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said,” it made a difference for that one.”
