Porcupine Fable

Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died

because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the

situation, decided to group together. This way,

they covered and protected themselves; but, the

quills of each one wounded their closest companions

even though they gave off heat to each other.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.

So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of

their 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 brings together perfect people, but the best is

when each individual learns to live with

the imperfections of others and can admire

the other person’s good qualities.

((((Hugs & Love))
