105. THE CAT AND THE STORK
Perry (Odo 71)

We should strive to be like the stork who was carrying home an eel as food for herself and her chicks.
"The cat saw a stork carrying an eel. Now, the cat is a creature who dearly loves fish although he doesn't like to get his feet wet. So the cat said to the stork, 'O most beautiful bird! You have such a red beak and such white feathers! Could it be that your beak is just as red on the inside as it is on the outside?' The stork refused to answer the cat, keeping her mouth shut so that she wouldn't lose her eel. The angry mouser then began insulting the stork, 'Why, you must be deaf or dumb! Why don't you answer me, you wretched creature? You do eat snakes sometimes, don't you? Snakes are poisonous and filthy! A nice animal likes to eat nice things, but you like to eat filthy things that are not nice at all! That means you are the most filthy bird in the world!' The stork didn't say anything, and just kept on walking, carrying her eel."

Moral of the story is don't fvck with the haters.

Many threads on DDO would be half as long if people followed this advice.

When people get upset over criticisms, that can sometimes be a sign that they don't have legitimate critics in their lives. When you surround yourself with peers, mentors, and friends who know you, your work, and your interests well enough to offer you informed advice, a random attack by a stranger won't mean anything to you. Do your best to cultivate an atmosphere of continued growth and openness with your friends and colleagues.

Well yes; We all have to eat the eel of knowledge; but only I am old enough to be able to afford to give it away. If you do not know, ask. If you do not understand, ask for the same knowledge from another angle. Never give up teaching if you know, Never forget to learn if you know not. Never give up, and always try to be polite and patient.

Stay tooned. You do know that not all symbols are natural. Baudelaire was a symbolist, SEE POETRY in Art, where Baudelaire compared his love for his girl to a rotting corpse passed on the path. Anything can mean anything you want it to mean but you have to give some one the key to it all.
