traveller was amazed with the beauties he saw in the construction site
of a new imperial building he was visiting for the first time. He asked
an artisan what he was doing. The artisan answered reluctantly that he
was putting bricks one on top of the other. The traveller moved on and
asked a second artisan the same question. This time the artisan answered
by explaining that he was building the wall of the government's new headquarters.
Satisfied with the second answer, the traveller repeated exactly the same
question to a seemingly more experienced artisan. The third artisan answered
"I am pleased to work on the wall of
a building that will be our pride"
"I am pleased to work on the wall of a building that will be our pride"
