It does not appear that many know or understand the seriousness of financial health of the country. I would also like to share one of my favourite quotes on understanding. “A blind man knows he cannot see, and is glad to be led, though it be by a dog; but he that is blind in his understanding, which is the worst blindness of all, believes he sees as the best, and scorns a guide.” -Samuel Butler May you have the wisdom from above to give you the understanding you seek to make this New Year one of the best ever! Sherwin, thanks for your kind words and the great quote! I like the multiple meanings of understanding. There’s getting understanding and being understanding. I’m probably better at the first and am working on the second. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
