Vizzini (as played Wallace Shawn), a character from the classic film “The Princess Bride” famously said …
“Haha! You Fool, you fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous of which is, ‘never get involved in a land war in Asia,’ but only slightly less well-known is this: ‘Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!’”
There is another classic blunder that Vizzini failed to mention. Perhaps because he died shortly after declaring the first two. An additional ‘classic blunder is surely “never involve yourself in a love triangle”.
Triangles - When it comes to analogies and the revealing and explanation of wise ideas and practical concepts, triangles are very common.
You have your fire triangle - Fuel, Oxygen, Heat.
The education triangle – Student, Teacher, and Parent.
And, so many others.
I have another triangle I’d like to share with you. A three-sided analogism that helps us understand a very critical, but often complex part, of human existence - Love and Relationships.
Yes, that’s right – a love triangle!
But, not like the one that everyone knows as a ‘classic blunder’.
