PT: Quote of the Day


"Don't shoot the bird
while the bird is flying!"

(Good advice given to my daughter-in-law by her sweet mother, who got it from her father. So, what is your take on this old Philippino proverb?)

My take: Don't stop a person's passion while they're in the middle of things.

That's an interesting proverb--so open to interpretation.

Yes. Destroying its natural great art and freedom as it's displaying them...

It strikes me that's like spitting in the face of deity.

Like killing a mother mouse in the middle of giving birth.
