Street Sweeper
31st Aug, 2013 at 8:25pm
 
What Iím saying to you this morning, my friends, even if it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go on out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures; sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music; sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry; (Go ahead) sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, ďHere lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.Ē

If you canít be a pine on the top of a hill

Be a scrub in the valleyóbut be

The best little scrub on the side of the hill,

Be a bush if you canít be a tree.

If you canít be a highway just be a trail

If you canít be the sun be a star;

It isnít by size that you win or failó

Be the best of whatever you are.

And when you do this, when you do this, youíve mastered the length of life

Very inspirational, gives me hope for the future. Even the street sweepers can find happiness in this life provided they have enough food to eat and shelter to cover their head.
