Some tall fold say, “Don’t Reinvent the Wheel”, those tall folks are stupid! Even they reinvent their own wheels all the time! All they are saying is, “I’m afraid of change.”
Gnome and Goblin innovations are scary to some because they don’t know what will happen. Well how are you ever supposed to LEARN anything if you just do things with predictable results?
Another one I hate, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” the attitude of that expression is: you should not try to make things better, because you might make things worse. The truth is, even if you make the situation worse in the short term, you LEARNED something. That knowledge will give you the power to make the future even better in the LONG term!
