Perfection - A Sculptors Viewpoint

A man was visiting a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God.

Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you need two statues of the same idol?”

“No,” said the sculptor without looking up, “We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage.”

The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage. “Where is the damage?” he asked.

“There is a scratch on the nose of the idol” said the sculptor, still busy with his work.

“Where are you going to install the idol?” asked the man.

The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.

“If the idol is that far, who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?” the man asked.

The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the man, smiled and said, “I know it and God knows it!”

Always strive for excellence - No path is to far. Excellence is a drive from inside, not outside. Excel at a task today – not necessarily for someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction.
