Wise advice from Mark Twain

This came in via the A.Word.A.Day mailing list:

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it -- and stop there -- lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one any more.
-Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)

This is good enough you should read it twice.

Technorati tags: wisdom, learning

One of my favorite Twain quotes goes like this:
“Eat a live frog every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” lol

I wonder if Mark Twain ever ate a live frog?
