“If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. minister, civil rights activist

Nothing is impossible but the work like being street sweeper assumed to be not respected by the people can not be done gracefully. Only he who feel eternally free can do such job with great joy
