The Wisdom of Sages

This really happened to me. I was traveling for days, weeks, years, seeking a guru who would tell me the secret of life. I traveled over deserts, through blinding snowstorms, over rock outcroppings and sunny meadows.

I finally arrived at the mountain top where the wise woman lived. She turned to me, looked me directly in the eye and said: "Never throw pigs before swine."

How's that for a pearl of wisdom?

  1. I knew this was a farce when you said "she."

    I'm not a woman hater, but that was much too easy.
