There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you will still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everyhting

  1. I remember Sean Connery saying a version of this in a movie once…

    “Never bring a knife to a gun fight”

    Translation:

    accept that when it sucks, if you can’t change it… well it’s gonna suck. All you do is waste energy and brainpower that should be put toward accomplishing something through the suck.

    Of course, the original quote is more elegant…..
