525. God asked me, man asked me

The other day God asked me

What I was aspiring for.

I said, "I would like

To offer infinite praises to man."

He immediately granted my prayer.


The other night man asked me

What I was aspiring for.

I said, "I would like

To become the dead dust of God's Feet."

Man's answer: "How dare you think

God would condescend to grant you

Such a mighty prayer?"
