Parable of the Great Man

May 2, 2008
By Edward Walker, Aurora, CO

Step by step...
A great man was walking through the wilderness.
It was in the wilderness that he came to a narrow door at the base of a steep mountain;
The narrow door was happiness...
And the door had no know or handle, but bore a heart-shaped hole from which light shined...
It was then that the great man sought a place for his own heart...
So he decided to send his own heart through to the other side,
But when he tried, he found that his heart was too big...
So the great man shattered the great heart...
And sent it through...
Piece by piece...

"All people bear broken hearts, but great people have the courage to carry all the pieces."
