Parable of despondency.

Parable of despondency 

Many years ago, the devil decided to boast and put on public display all the tools of his craft. He neatly folded them in a glass display case, and attached labels to them, so that everyone knew what it was and what the cost of each of these tools was. 
What a collection it was! There was also a brilliant Dagger of Envy, and an Hammer of Wrath, and a Gap of Greed. On the shelves were lovingly laid out all the instruments of Fear, Pride and Hatred. All the tools lay on beautiful pads and caused admiration for every visitor to Hell. 
And on the farthest shelf lay a small, unsightly and rather shabby wooden wedge with the label "Despondency". Surprisingly, it cost more than all the other tools combined.
When asked why the devil so highly appreciates this object, he replied: 
- This is the only tool in my arsenal that I can rely on if all the others are powerless. - And he stroked the wooden wedge with tenderness. 
"But if I manage to drive him into the head of a man, he opens the door to all other instruments ..."
