Wisdom from unlikely sources

A former supervisor once taught me the principle of seeking wisdom from unlikely sources (sidebar: he and I had other conflicts that made my learning this from him its own proof). On the 44 to Wallingford, I was blessed to hear the following from a conversation between a couple of street kids sitting directly behind me:
We gotta make a pact to listen to each other more...you never steered me wrong...even when I do asshole-y things, like this morning, you were loyal to me.
</i>Even in lives of quiet desperation, they're getting something many of us miss.

Despite what we are told, there is hope for the future.
Indeed.
"If you stub your toe on a rock, and learn to watch where you are walking, then even the rock is a guru to you."
I'd never heard this before—very wise.
