I am reminded...

"WHO IS LEARNED?

A definition


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."
