Quote of the Week 369 - The Joy of Good Work
In the actions of the best men others find their rule of action. The path that a great man follows becomes a guide to the world.
I have no work to do in all the worlds…I have nothing to obtain, because I have all. And yet I work.
If I was not bound to action, never-tiring, everlastingly, men that follow many paths would follow my path of inaction.
If ever my work had an end, these worlds would end in destruction, confusion would reign with all: this would be the death of all beings.
Even as the unwise work selfishly in the bondage of selfish works, let the wise man work unselfishly for the good of all the world.
Let not the wise disturb the mind of the unwise in their selfish work. Let him, working with devotion, show them the joy of good work.
Do thy duty, even if it be humble, rather than another’s, even if it be great. To die in one’s duty is life: to live in another’s is death.
--The Bhagavad Gita, 3:21-26, 3:35, translated by Juan Mascaró
