An aquaintance of mine has presented me with a life lesson:
When you interact with four different wise people who give you a solid plan, but you don't like it … and then you ask people who don't have their life together at all, but they tell you what you want to hear and then you listen to their advice and take action (to the ultimate detriment of yourself and those you love) …
Well, I don't have much to say about that.
A quote I see often in a library I frequent:
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
May we learn from other's poor choices and not compound them with our own.
