Fable of the Porcupine


It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of  the cold.  The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group  together.  This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills  of each one wounded their closest companions even though they gave off  heat to each other.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves  one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.  So they had
to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or
disappear from the Earth.  Wisely, they decided to go back to being  together.  This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were  caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others.  This way they were able to survive.

Moral of the story:   The best relationship is not the one that
brings together perfect people, but the best is when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others, and can admire the other person's good qualities.

Modern Moral of the story..........LEARN TO LOVE THE PRICKS IN
