Bricklayers Do Far More than Lay Bricks
Community & Culture
Have you heard the old tale about the woman walking down the street who comes upon a man hunched over on the ground, apparently doing some work? She asks the man, "What is that you are doing?" The man replies, "Laying a brick." Curious, she sees another man, apparently laying another brick, and again pauses to ask, "What are you doing?" This man, doing the same work as the first, replies that he is "building a wall." A few dozen feet further down the street the woman comes to a third man, laying a brick in the same manner as the first two. She asks the third man, "What are you doing?" To which he replies, "Building a Cathedral."
