This "Creative speech" has been send by one of my friend via email, after i read through, it touch me so much that i decided to post it out in my blog. So here it is -
On the first day, as Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, just in the middle,one man stood up.He was a rich aristocrat. He said that, " Mr.Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family". And the whole senate laughed;they thought they had made a fool of Abraham Lincoln.
But Lincoln-and that type of people are made of a totally different mettle, Lincoln looked at the man and said, "Sir i know my father used to make shoes in your house for your family, and there will be many others here...because the way he made shoes; nobody else can. He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes, he poured his whole soul in it. I want to ask you, have you any complaint? Because i know how to make shoes myself; if you have any complaint i can make another pair of shoes. But as far as i know, nobody has ever complained about my father's shoes.He was a genius,a great creator and i am proud of my father".
The whole senate was struck dumb. They could not understand what kind of man Abraham Lincoln was. He had made shoe making an art, a creativity. And he was proud that his father did the job so well that not even a single complaint had ever been heard.
It does not matter what you do. What matters is how you do it-of our own accord, with your vision, with your own love. Then whatever you touch becomes gold.
