A True Story

I met someone the other day who had been a very keen motorcyclist in his teens and twenties. He had an accident whilst riding his bike which had left him paralysed in one arm and in one leg. He is able to get about in a specially adapted car but unfortunately he is unable to work.

Today, nine years after his accident, he still takes an interest in bikes and his dearest wish is to ride a bike again. But the thing that I remember most about him was that he still maintained that bikes are the "greatest thing that man ever invented".

I only hope that I would feel that way in his position.
