FORBIDDEN FRUIT IS THE SWEETEST

Forbidden things arouse curiosity. If somebody forbids us to do something, our curiosity will increase. We will wonder why we are forbidden to do it. Everyone knows that drugs are harmful. One may get addicted if he tries it. But knowing all this, adventurous youngsters try them at the risk of getting addicted. If a child is forbidden to go and look down from the edge of a high rise building, he will try to look down from the cliff at the first chance he gets. He wants to see what is over the other side of the cliff. This proverb is taken from the story in I the Bible which narrates the incident when Adam and Eve ate the for-bidden fruit.
