19. Interesting...
I read this parable in a book by an Eastern Indian I believe it was Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Rajneesh was very well read and used stories to convey his message and meanings. I guess he could have read Sandburg's version and changed it a bit...or it could have been the other way around also. Just as I changed the story a little bit..since I read it several years ago.

Either way, the message is the same and very true.

Peace,

Jokinomx
