The Elephant Rope (Short Stories)

 There are a lot of short stories on the internet but here is the one that i found very interesting  it is called or named "The Elephant Rope". Here's how it goes:
 The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.


Based upon my analyzation here are the structures and also the language features:


From the stories we can have a conclusion that no matter the difficulties in life we cannot give up just because of a single problem that we can't get over.
