If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper,
sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures,
sweep streets like Beethoven composed music,
sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera.
Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry.
Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth
will have to pause and say:
Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem. (Was auch immer du tust, tue es gut und bedenke das Ende.)
