Ancient Wisdom

If the terrain is rough
but you need to get across,
look for a gap in the rock.

– Chief Glory Horse

(aka Iself)

This ancient wisdom was retrieved in response to the request for literature with “gap and/or rock” (Two for Tuesdays IX).

There's a lot of commonsense in that.

Thanks, Anthony North!

The Native Americans did (do) have a lot of commonsense advice to offer.

I seem to recall one piece of N.A. wisdom - possibly reported by Tony Hillerman - that said something like "when the enemy outnumbers you - flee."
