Thought for Today
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~ George Gordon, Lord Byron ~
“Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage”

Thought for Today

…the story of a man who saw
three fellows laying bricks at a new building:

He approached the first and asked,
“What are you doing?”
Clearly irritated, the first man responded,
“What the heck do you think I’m doing?
I’m laying these darn bricks!”

He then walked over to the second bricklayer
and asked the same question.
The second fellow responded,
“Oh, I’m making a living.”

He approached the third bricklayer
with the same question,
The third looked up, smiled and said,
“I’m building a cathedral.”

At the end of the day, who feels better
about how he’s spent his last eight hours?

~Joan Borysenko
