After God formed the first man from clay, he noticed that he still had a small piece of clay left.
– What else do you want me to create for you, man?
The man thought a bit and said:
– Create me happiness!
But God, did not know what happiness the man wants. So, he just gave the remaining clay to the man and said to him:
– Here, create your happiness yourself!
Since then, they say that man is the one who creates what he is able to – from what he has at his disposal.
- Everything is in your hands. Though, the quality of the clay may be important as well.
- Shostakovich, R. I. Toasts. Collection. M., 1996.
