If you are losing a tug-of-war with a tiger, give him the rope before he gets to your arm. You can always buy a new rope.
In the words of my musical friends, this don’t need no amp. The truth herein should be loud enough.
There are, however, those smitten with PRIDE who stubbornly would rather drown while firmly belted in to the Captain’s Chair of a doomed ship than for a moment consider the viability of learning, living and overcoming what attitudes and events 86ed the ship.
Every day brings the possibility of meeting a tiger at rope’s end. What you choose to do during that encounter won’t much bother the big cat. It says much about you.
