The smartest of rats know when to leave the ship. If you are on a ship headed for the rocks, it is wise to get off and get on the lifeboat of the Dao. It is most important to get out of the boat before the boat becomes an expensive piece of driftwood. The water may be cold, but it’s better than meeting a large rock face to face and face a worse fate. Ships are often wrecked because of unworthy wannabe captains more than anxious to steer your vessel for you. Be your own captain and control what waters you sail into.
