Bug in a Rug

Posted: July 28th, 2009 | Tags: | 2 Comments »

There exists an old Persian legend about a bug who spent his entire life in the world’s most beautifully designed rug:

All the bug ever saw in his lifetime was his problems. They stood up all around him, he couldn’t see over the top of them, and he had to fight his way through these tufts of wool, in the rug, to find some crumbs someone had spilled in the rug. And the tragedy of the story of the bug in the rug was this; that he lived and he died in the world’s most beautifully designed rug, but he never once knew that he spent his life in something which had a pattern.
