Mark Twain

This quote was added by originsaint
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

I'm usually a big fan of Twain, however, this is a super crappy analogy. Who the heck wants a cat on their stove anyways? That's got dirty litter box paws - that's gross!
