The Lesson of the Egg

This morning I fixed omelettes, as I normally do. The trick is to know when to flip the eggs. Wait too long, and the eggs burn on one side, making for a crispy omelets. But if you don't wait long enough, you risk having the spatula break up the eggs, scrambling them.

The lesson for people, especially relationships, is to know when to flip. That patience is the most important virtue when dealing with people is obvious. And it's also the virtue that is in short supply these days. Which results in many broken omelets.
