When I first got a job, I went in with my opinions. An elder programmer I worked with set me straight, clear and succinctly.He said "opinions are like butt holes. We all have them, and they all stink!"
I was held speechless, he was right. It gave me a perspective to listen to others, accept, and challenge myself. That is very succinct wisdom that I felt important to pass on and live.
how about you.
