Tea-Tag-Tuesday: The Thorn of Experience

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?

    • Thanx Dolly! Where am I going with the tea-tags? I have no idea! I thought many brands of tea had sayings on the tags. ha ha ha on me. It’s my world and everyone else is just in it. LOL!
      I know that Yogi and Good Earth brands have sayings.

      Great hearing from you! Forgive my lack of visiting for so long… I do miss your blog greatly. I will soon get back into the ‘groove’ of things. Hugz

      • It really doesn’t matter, darling, since you are allowing other sayings, rather than only those from tea-tags, so I am really looking forward to many interesting contributions from your readers.
        Much love,
