Wisdom of the Ages 249

Everybody has his or her own particular Hell in life. It can take almost any form, but whatever it is, it causes suffering. The catch is to survive the suffering, and learn its lesson. In my own life, I have learned that compassion meets and conquers every situation. This enabled me, at my son’s wedding, to kiss his father, the man who attempted my murder some 25 years earlier.
On a practical note: Don’t eat to keep your spouse/children company. Don’t finish the food on your children’s plates. (unless you’d like to gain weight.) — And the house never will be clean: entertain anyhow.
