A man offered to pay a sum of money to his twelve-year-daughter if she mowed the lawn.
The girl went at the task with great zest and by evening the whole lawn had been beautifully mowed – well, everything except the large uncut patch of grass in one corner.
When the man said he couldn't pay the sum agreed upon because the whole lawn hadn't been mowed, the girl said she was ready forego the money, but would not cut the grass in the patch.
Curious to find out why, he checked the uncut patch. There, right in the center of the patch, sat a large toad.
The girl had been too tender-hearted to run over it with the lawn–mower.

Perfect order would make the world a graveyard."
