Wisdom of the Ages 389

A contributuion to the Wisdom of the Ages project arrived this morning from Flora Goodson, it reads:

My life lesson is one I re-learn every so often especially when working with the public, my husband or my kids & their various friends.

“never teach a pig to sing it waists your time & annoys the pig”

people are who they are & you need to work with them or around them the way they are.
trying to change someone is the height of folly & never works to your benefit.
Of course this is not to say I haven’t tried to teach a pig or two anyway!

and something my late father told me before he passed away
“don’t sweat the small stuff ”
