Do'nt cry over spilt milk
"I was only in my teens," said Allen Saunders as he told me the story, "but i was a worrier even then. Iused to stew and fret about the mistakes I had made. If I turned in an examination paper, I used to lie awake and chew my fingernails for fear I hadn't passed. I was always living over the things I had done, and wishing I'd done them differently; thinking over the things I had said, and wishing I'd said them better."
"Then one morning, our class filed into the science labaratory, and there was the teacher, Dr. Paul Brandwine, with a bottle of milk porminently displayed on the edge of the desk. We all sat down, staring at the milk, and wondering what it had to do with the hygiene course he was teaching. Then, all of a sudden, Dr. Paul Brandwine stood up, swept the bottle of milk with a crash into the sink - and shouted: "Don't cry over spilt milk!"
"He then made us all come to the sink and look at the wreckage. 'Take a good look,' he told us, ' because i want you to remember this lesson the rest of your lives. That milk is gone - you can see it's down the drain; and all the fussing and hair-pulling in the world won't bring back a drop of it. With a little thought and prevention, that milk might have been saved. But it's too late now - all we can is write it off, forget it, and go on the next thing."
"That one little demonstration," Allen Saunders told me, "stuck with me long after I'd forgotten my solid geometry and Latin. In fact, it taught me more about practical living than anything else in my four years of high school. It taught me to keep from spilling milk if I could; but to forget it completely, once it was spilled and had gone down the drain."
