You've got to take the Good with the Bad . .
Yah, umm, but of course. Who wouldn't want to do that? Is like saying I could care less when what you mean is I couldn't care less . .
"Right, Mr Bains. We've got a load a bad stuff we're gonna dump up on ya, but there's a catch. You've gotta take this Good stuff too. Sorry. Them's the rules."
What? Ahh crap. I could care less 'bout the good. Just shovel some more shit on me, will ya?
You bet I'm takin' the Good with the Bad. The trick is to be able to take the Bad with the Good because all that bad stuff is coming whether we want it or not, and regardless of whether there's any good attached to it.
As the flame burns low
there is a twinge
a small reliving of the loss
as when your body died
In that same moment
a whisper of relief
The elders were wise
to guide us to honor you
and grieve your passing
only one day a year
From Your Yahrzeit by Pink Granite
I'll take the good with the bad every time without appeal. I gotta take the bad with the good, whether I want it or not.
But it's not like I couldn't care less.
