Ever had a really tough knot in your shoelaces? Ever wanted to cut that knot? You knew that once you cut that knot rather than taking your time to untie the knot, your choice was very final. This saying takes that experience and reminds you that life can have many knots.Don’t cut knots; don’t burn bridges. Many things once done can’t be undone. Remember this when you’re tired or frustrated and think about taking a shortcut that will have ramifications for a lifetime.
