Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 28, 1995
Hobbes: You're going to juggle eggs? Calvin: It's a metaphor for life, Hobbes. Each egg represents one of life's concerns and the goal is to give each the appropriate amount of individual attention while simultaneously watching and guiding all the others. Life is about balance and staying quick and alert as everything threatens to spin out of control! Hobbes: And sometimes we make a big mess of things. Calvin: But the important thing is persistance.
