I am reminded...
"WHO IS LEARNED?
One who, consuming midnight oil
in studies diligent and slow,
teaches himself, with painful toil,
the things that other people know. "
a grook by Piet Hein
And one such leading to another, more
or less in the spirit of Penric's experiences:
"SIMPLY ASSISTING GOD
I am a humble artist
molding my earthly clod;
I'm adding my labor to nature’s,
and simply assisting God.
Not that my effort is needed;
yet somehow, I understand,
my maker has willed it that I too should have
unmolded clay in my hand."
