Are you a stone cutter or do you build castles?

The story goes a little something like this…

Three stone cutters were asked about their jobs.

The first one replied, “I’m paid to cut stones.”

The second replied, “I use special techniques to shape stones in an exceptional way, here let me show you.” He proceeded to demonstrate.

The third just smiled and said, “I build castles.”
