A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.It is amazing how often we see troubled waters ahead, but refuse to change course. We paddle straight into a whirlpool and then flail about trying to get out.
~ King James version ~
Deal with it before it happens.
Set things in order before there is confusion.
~ from Verse 64 of the Tao Te Ching ~
The best way to extricate oneself from a whirlpool is to avoid it in the first place!
