Moral of the story

In Memory of my dear friend Rose Rauf

Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?

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

themselvec; 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.

The Moral of the story!





  1. I have relationships like that – they turn out to be pretty good pricks, and you want those pricks on your side!


  2. so funny… I think this is actually a photo of a hedgehog…
