Dale Carnegie once noted that there was only animal that the grizzly bear would allow to eat with him. That animal is the skunk.

Grizzly bears in Yellowstone Park often come to eat at the place where garbage is dumped. This huge bear can fight and beat almost any animal in the West, but it lets the skunk share its meal.

Carnegie said that the grizzly bear surely resented the skunk and could have easily killed the little creature in any fight. No doubt the bear would have liked to have gotten even with him for his intrusion. But he didn’t.

Why? Because he knew the high cost of getting even.

Most animals are not dumb. They are much smarter than many humans who allow their stomachs to churn all day, their minds to storm all night, and their souls to turn black with hatred as they refuse to forgive!
