THERE was an ancient Greek philosopher who is reputed to have counseled: ‘Young man, get married, get married. If you get a good wife, you will be happy and that is a good thing. And if you do not get a good wife, you will become a philosopher and that also is a good thing. The idea of the latter part of the saying is that it is good to adjust to that which cannot be changed, taking a philosophical view of life, as it were. This matter of learning to live with the unchangeable applies to ever so many facets of life.
