Let's look at several quotes this morning :-
a. "We never know the worth of water till the well is dry" 18th Century English Proverb.
b. "All things good to know are difficult to learn" Greek Proverb
c. "Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them" James Baldwin
d. "The driver is safer when the road is dry, the road is safer when the driver is dry" W.G.P
e. 'One who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; one who does not ask a question remains a fool forever" Chinese Proverb
Appears to be the norms in our lives yet there are no changes to the actions. We don't take heed of advice promoted through the years.
