On learning a Titanic lesson, 100 years on

"Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats."
Voltaire


Forgive my all-too-obvious indulgence, but this seemed especially timely today. I wonder what other lessons this ship continues to share with us...any guesses?

I just love history and, lately, have been reading a lot about Titanic: the part it has played in history and the people involved. If anything, it has taught me that tragedy could strike at any moment, even when you think you are most safe (unsinkable.)

Maybe, that extravagance is not needed... to enjoy the simple things... extravagant trips, clothes,jewelry, cars are just things... A giving, tolerant heart has more value and is more admirable.

A. Kiwi - that's a classic scene, from Monty Python Life of Brian.
Lesson from the Titanic: Nothing is absolute.
