Be useful

MexicCity 085

Be useful to others, be not
only a pot but also a table.
Contain multitudes,
Support with your eyes,
your ears and hands.

Worry not about what
is useful to you or
about being ‘used’
by others. Be gladly
of good use, for life
is short, and in it
to have been useful
is an accomplishment.

Be an instrument
beyond your knowing.

– Wm Marling
