Fable of the porcupine
It was the coldest winter ever.
Many animals died because of the cold.
The porcupines, realizing the situation
and decided to group together.
This way they covered and protected themselves;
Even though they gave off heat to each other,
their quills wounded their closest companions.
After awhile, they decided to distance themselves
from each other and began to freeze alone and die.
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
caused by close relationship with their companions,
but the most important part of it,
was the warmth that came from the others.
This way they were able to survive.
The best relationships are
not the ones that brings together perfect people,
the best is when each individual
learns to live with the imperfections of others
and can admire the other person's good qualities.
The Moral of the story ..
