Tree in Black and White

Tree in Black and White

\’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 any more.\’

Mark Twain
