Thought for the day
I've just found this very comforting quotation:
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Einstein (who else?)
So that's the answer. I'm a fish, and I must stop trying to climb trees. Voila. Success at last!

That's a very profound quotation, Frnaces - maybe we should all frame it!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful analogy! Me too - I can stop climbing, can't I ?ReplyDelete
I really like that 'thought for the day'. It gets you thinking doesn't it? Thanks for that. xReplyDelete
Oh! Thank you. I knew I was misunderstood! :)ReplyDelete
Excellent thought for the day - I shall stop climbing too.ReplyDelete
Good to knwo that we all seem tobe trying to climb (the wrong?) trees. Now, let's all try to find the right (write?) one...ReplyDelete
Thansk for all the comments!
I've not been trying to climb trees - maybe I should give it a go?ReplyDelete
Don't bother, Patsy. Just write a bestseller...ReplyDelete
