Being A Sponge Is Good

I always found it strange that people would call each other sponges to insult them. Sponges never really seemed that bad. I mean, I do understand that our culture loathes being soft and literally spineless, but with all things considered, sponges have some of the most important qualities to being a good person. 

A sponge can absorb absolutely anything. It has the ability both to retain what it soaks up and to release it. Sponges are flexible and pliable. A sponge can hold on to other things and never stops being itself.

If you ever get called a sponge, take it as a compliment. Whether the speaker knows it or not, they are saying that you have the qualities needed to be a great person.
