Quotetastic: Marvelous Cornelius








This was such a beautiful fable based on the true life of a sanitation worker with a positive attitude. This story also deals with the after effects of Hurricane Katrina. 

The quote that drew me the most was actualy one in the front pages of the book :

"Even if it's called your lot to be a street sweeper, go out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.' "

Martin Luther King Jr.

Really love this quote and the book.
