One Minute Wisdom

Change

The visiting historian was disposed to be argumentative. "Do not our efforts change the course of human history?" he demanded.
"Oh yes, they do," said the Master.
"And have not our human labours changed the earth?"
"They certainly have," said the Master.
"Then why do you teach that human effort is of little consequence?"
Said the Master, "Because when the wind subsides, the leaves still fall."
