Martin Luther King, Jr.

"If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.

He should sweep so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well."

Amen. I wish I could adopt this way of thinking all the time!
