This proverbs reminds me of one of Aesop's fable in which the mice had a general meeting to outwit the cat (their common enemy). At the meeting there were many wonderful proposals. In fact one mouse suggested that they put a bell around the cat's neck to signal them whenever the cat was approaching so they could all escape. This suggestion was admired and applauded by almost all the mice until an old mouse got up and said, "That is a very great idea, but who will bell the cat?". The mice…

Someone might say, "of course everyone knows this". And yes everyone knows that but you see, not everyone can see the lesson that that communicates. There are lessons and opportunities everywhere we look but it takes extra effort to recognise them. I'm sure you've heard of Mickey Mouse or at least heard of Disney World.
