Have more than you need?

Then build a longer table

Not a higher fence

***

NOTE: This is a Found Haiku. Possibly, this is the original source: “If you are more fortunate than others, its [it’s] better to build a longer table than a taller fence” — –/u/161803399 (a Redditor who has deleted his or her account). Quoted here: http://tinyurl.com/y74gw34d. At this point, this has the status of a proverb, in my opinion.
