Four Major Lessons In Life (Part 3 - Summer)

"The third major lesson in life is: learn how to nourish and protect your crops all summer. Sure enough, as soon as you've planted, the busy bugs and the noxious weeds are out to take it. And here is the next bit of truth: they will take it, unless you prevent it. And that is the third major lesson to learn. Major skill to develop: preventing the intruder from taking the goods.

Here are two key phrases to consider under the third major lesson. First, all good will be attacked. On this planet, all good will be attacked, and don't press me for a why. I was not in on some of the early decisions. So I don't know why. All I know is it's true. Let reality be your best beginning. Every garden will be invaded, not to think so is naive.

Here's the second phrase: all values must be defended. Social values, political values, friendship values, marriage values, family values, business values. Every garden must be tended all summer. If you don't develop this skill, you'll never wind up with anything of value."
