THE TOLERANCE OF FRAYED COLLARS.

 
Are not those who warn of the dangers of resentment, often the  proponents  of the virtues of tolerance.

But what exactly is it that we are to tolerate; Minor annoyances;  Major annoyances?

Are not major annoyances those which were once considered minor? And was it not the trait of tolerance that kept the fire burning?

Question everything.

Including the answers.

And finally…

Be wary of aging scholars who keep alive the wisdom of the ages, whose  rocking chairs need oiling and whose collars are frayed.
