This is an excerpt from The Path by Laurie Beth Jones.
“When I encounter teachers who are constantly complaining or meet housewives who are bitter, I quickly conclude that they are not following their divinely ordained mission. Perhaps they are following their economically ordained mission, or their culturally ordained mission, but they can’t be following their divinely ordained mission, because bees hum while theywork – they don’t whine.
I believe it is well whithin the natural order of things to have everybody humming at work. As a noted economist recently stated, “Unemployment is a characteristic unique to the human species only. All the other creatures and creations seem to know what they are supposed to be doing.”
