On the first day, as President Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, just in the middle, one man stood up. He was a rich aristocrat.
He said, "Mr. Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family". And the whole Senate laughed; they though 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 that that 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 ware 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 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 because 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 matter is how you do it – of our own accord, with your own vision, with your own love. Then whatever you touch become gold
