He that's Aground Knows Where the Shoal is

“Experience teaches far more than tongue can tell, / Where the shoe pinches, or where troubles dwell: / When on the shoal the loaded boat is lying, / This man, he knows it well - the oar he’s plying; / He can true warning give to others round, / He knows full well the boat is on the ground."—Barber, 1857
