I'm not trying to say anything at all. I simply thought it was an interesting quote. If anything, the saying points out the power and limitations of analogies. Even if we refer to seeds of wisdom, however, the same problem arises with infertile minds.

Teach a man to plant seeds, and the world is his oyster. Or something.
-- Matt

Show me a man who covets pearls, and I'll show you a man who can't farm worth a damn. Or something.
--Matt

Show me a man who understands a pearl, and I'll show you a man who eats onions for breakfast. Or something.
--Matt

Show me a man who can grow oysters from seeds and I'll show you some more orthogonal analogies.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
