The cathedral metaphor – An apocryphal story from the 17th century

Three bricklayers doing exactly the same task gave different answers to the question “what are you doing now”, made by a person walking by.

The first one said…I’m laying bricks.

The second one…I’m completing the wall.

The third one…I’m building a cathedral!

Dear visitor: what kind of bricklayer have you been lately?
