Silent nobility

“The work an unknown good man has done is like a vein of water flowing hidden underground, secretly making the ground green.”

~ Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) Scottish Writer

In nature we see a plethora of beauty – plants with colorful flowers; magnificent trees; green pastures; desert cactus; and whispering willows. Yet, we don’t really give much thought to how they actually got there as much as we do enjoying their infinite exquisiteness and allure. Can you think of anything you can do to better the world around you? How about enriching someone’s life with your kindness, generosity, and time. Maybe you are inspiring people with your artistic talents by painting the world around you with your colorful words and/or vivid images. In your life, you must do your best to initiate the same effect as nature’s beauty has on us so that others can enjoy the fruits of your secret nourishment. Are you making the world a better place to live in through your silent work?
