A German once visited 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?"
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 gentleman asked.
The sculptor stopped work,
looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, "I will
know it."
The desire to excel is exclusive of the fact whether
someone else appreciates it or not. "Excellence" is a
drive from inside, not outside. Excellence is not for
someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction
and efficiency.
