Week End Inspiration

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

  5. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful thought. The quote may also be taken to mean that it is the inner thing that is important, just like the worth of a human being can be judged from what kind of a soul he has. A man's exterior is only an eye-wash, it is the interior that matters.
