一块金子与一块泥巴相遇。金子对泥巴说:「你看你,灰不溜秋的,你有我闪亮的光芒吗?你有我高贵吗?」泥巴摇摇头说:「我能生出花,生出果,生出草,生出树木,生出庄稼,生出万物,你能吗?」金子沉默了。

生命的意义,不在于自己值多少钱,而是自身创造了多少价值。因为你的存在,帮助了很多人,这才是价值。泥巴和金子相比虽然平凡普通,不如黄金高贵,但泥巴真正的价值却是可以源源不绝孕育生命、滋养万物。

人的价值不在于自身具备多少才华,而是这些才华能够帮助多少人,如文所说,多少人因我们的存在而受到帮助,才是我们存于世上真正的价值。

When a piece of gold meets a piece of clay. The gold said to the clay, “Look at you all greyish and dark. Are you as shiny as me? Are you as dignified as me?” The clay shook its head and said, “I can grow flowers, fruits, grass, trees, crops and many others. Can you?” The gold turned silent.

Life’s meaning is not how much one is worth but how much value one can create. If one’s existence can help lots of people, that is value. Clay as compared to gold, is ordinary and not as worthy. However, clay’s real value is it can give life and nourishment to all existence.

A person’s worth is not how much talents he has but how these talents can help others. As what the above has mentioned, how many can benefit from our existence, is our true value and worth.
