The Little Things Can Mean So Much


There is a story of Boswell, the famous Biographer of Samuel Johnson. In his advanced years, Boswell reflected on the most important day of his life. He said it occurred one day during his youth, when his father had invited him to go fishing. While most of his childhood days had long since been forgotten, during that one day Boswell said that he learned about what life was about through example. Some industrious historian decided to track down the diary of Boswell’s father to see how he reflected on that most important day in the life of his famous son. The entry read: “Went fishing today with my son. A whole day wasted.”
