The Wednesday Reflection

Afternoon, gang,

Here's how the Wednesday Reflection works - I post something, give a little bit of a reflection, you post the SAME something but then add your OWN reflection. Then, link back here in the comments.

Spread the word!


A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.
Baltasar Gracian

An intriguing quote, I find this to be true only AFTER my enemies have done something to me to make them my enemies! There have been plenty of occasions where a situation or event reveals someone to be an 'enemy', and in all those circumstances I have learned from whatever resulted. Of course, I do not always remember what I learned, or if I do there is no guarantee that I put it into practice, but the general principle holds true.

Good reason to keep your enemies closer than your friends, I suppose, or as Michael Corleone says, "I don't need to destroy everyone, Tom. Just my enemies."

Your turn!
