Drinking versus Gargling

Through friends, we get introduced to their really cool friends who make you stop and say, "Hey, can I friend you on Facebook?" Weddings are always a great place to collect these new people. In Kaua'i earlier this year, I made a new Facebook friend who often posts very insightful status updates on his page.

Since it's been a long day and inspiration escapes me, I've decided to share one of Peter Malek's great pearls of wisdom from his Facebook page:
"Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle and spit."
Oh, how true! His status update is a variation of a quotation made famous by self-help author Dr. Robert Anthony, and demonstrates why I'm collect knowledge drinkers as friends instead of those who insist on spitting it out all the time. As I get older, I have less patience or time for knowledge "gargle-ers" who are unwilling to explore and embrace life's teaching moments and wisdom.
