George Carlin quote- Best quote- An ideal mind is the devils workshop

An ideal mind is the devils workshop

A person’s mind cannot really by ideal- it is always busy. But an ideal person uses his mind to think up evil things while a busy person has not time to dwell on anything but his work.
A person who has no work to do becomes lazy. He starts thinking of an easy, quick way of making a living. He might start stealing and become a criminal because he does not like to do hard, honest work.
Goethe wrote, “Nature knows no pause and attaches a curse upon inaction.” Indeed, it is a cruse to remain ideal. We must all make every effort to keep ourselves occupied. The more a person works, the more he progresses.
A man was once given a small piece of land. It was in the midst of a vast, arid wasteland. But he was happy to get this land and decide to work on it. He built a small wooden shack next to which he made a kitchen garden. He planted some wheat and pulses in the garden to help him survive, but since the surrounding areas were dry he had to fetch water from a distant steam. The man would wake up every early each morning and tend his kitchen garden.
As the days went by, the plants needed more water; the man realized that he could not fetch enough water from the steam and that he must dig a well near his garden. It took many days of hard work to dig the well. At last a day came when he touched water level. The farmer was so happy that he took a bath with the water even though it was muddy. He dug dipper and soon he had clear, fresh water for himself and his land.
Once the well was made, the farmer was able to cultivate more land. He bought the adjoining land and became a wealth and highly respected farmer. As time passed he built a big house and a show-case he kept a bucket, a rope, a shovel and the imprint of his hands for these were the basis of his success.
The wealthy farmer employed many workers but this not mean that he sat ideal. He kept improving his farm. He bought farm machinery, learnt how to use it and how to repair it in case it went out of order. Then he started a dairy farm and followed this up breeding cattle. And all the while he read books on agriculture, dairy farming, machinery repair and many other subjects. He was happy to be busy and he prospered.
