Fable of the Porcupine
It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing thesituation, decided to group together. This way theycovered and protected themselves; but the quills of eachone wounded their closest companions even though they gave off heat to each other.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves onefrom the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.
So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills oftheir companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely,they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it was the heat that came from the others.This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that bringstogether perfect people, but the best is when each individuallearns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.

The Moral of the story: LEARN TO LOVE THE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.
