I got this quote a few weeks ago and just loved it. I thought it is worth pondering all on its own without me adding my $.02 (at least not right now).
Enjoy…….and remember, don’t blame the lettuce!
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.

Aw heck…my mom covered the same topic in a much shorter quote: "Goldfish don't like jello."
