Quote of the Day

“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so,” wrote Douglas Adams.

 

Sometimes I have to remind myself to keep my mouth shut and my ears open, so that I can learn the easy way… from someone else.  Frequently I watch people I care about walk smack into brick walls because they refused to listen to everyone trying to give a little advice.   People clearly have to learn the hard way sometimes, and make their own mistakes.  That’s tough to watch.
