Who gives the rose its scent?

Share it Please
I was at a church once where the minister would recommend the book by Charles Barker, "How to change other people". It was a best seller. People would see the title and buy the book immediately. Naturally, no sooner had they read the first couple of pages, did they realize that the book was all about changing themselves. The miracle was that when they did change themselves, it was as if the outside world did change.

Alfred North Whitehead said it like this: "Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, it is we who give the rose its scent and the nightingale its song."

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
