Veronica di Angelo And Her Struggle For Perfection

Veronica di Angelo is nonplussed when things go awry in her life.  In one episode she attributes her misfortune to is superstition.  More specifically, a curse.  She believes that nothing will go right with her until the curse is removed.  This belief hearkens back to ancient times, representing a primal fear of chaos.  Mrs. Reg advises Veronica”to save perfection for heaven, for you certainly won’t find it here.”  It is only when Veronica accepts her circumstances that her life returns to normal.  The situation is surely an instance of Barry Stevens’s famous saying,”Don’t push the river, it flows by itself.”  The Saddle Club, though decidedly a program for young teenage girls, contains many nuggets of wisdom such as the one above.
