One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.
~ James Russell Lowell, 1819 – 1891, an American poet and critic, associated with the Fireside Poets.
The thorn of experience does tend to ‘stick’ with a person. Don’t you agree?
Can you imagine the experience this snail had, climbing up the rose bush? Thorns of all sizes, it encountered along the way. And for what? What is so important to cause the snail to go up and against the many sharp thorns?
I don’t know about snails, but I do know about humans and the experience in life, is all that matters. It is your experience, that is important. It is not the material possessions, money, nor mate that is important in life. It truly is the experience we have on Earth. The best part is, we can CHOOSE what experience we want. What experiences are you choosing in your life?
