Dignity in Restraint

There is an old saying: “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” It’s a particularly useful meditation, particularly in youth.

A friend and I were chatting yesterday about the fact that there is dignity in restraint. Some jump to conclusions while others jump into the sack.

You can rush headlong into just about anything—and society increasingly encourages the quest for immediate gratification aka the “quick fix”—but to do so rarely works out optimally.
