“Be careful what you wish for because you are liable to get it.”
-- From these Beginnings, p. 173, Jane Annixter (1937)
You’ve probably heard some variation of this adage, for which attributions range from the formulation above to an 1891 magazine article to the writings of Goethe, the German poet, author and statesman (who died more than fifty years earlier in 1832) to French folk tales and ancient Chinese proverbs. It’s a universal sentiment we all understand, and it can apply to just about anything we desire. Take, for example, the dedicated parking space at our headquarters building shown in the photo—an excellent reason to seek election to BAMC President, right?
