The Fable of Porcupine (worth reading)

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep themselves warm.

This way they covered and protected themselves from the cold but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

So they now decided to distance themselves from one another. Immediately they began too began to freeze to death like the other animals.

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.

They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the warmth and heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

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

Moral: It is better to be surrounded by warm pricks than be frozen in solitude!!!!!!
