Be Like a God
In the Upanishads there is a good story (one among many): Brahma came before the god of fire and said, "Who are you?" The god of fire said, "I am the god of fire. I can burn all things on earth." So Brahma placed a straw before the god of fire and said, "Burn this." But the god of fire could not burn it. Then the god of fire went back to all the other gods and said, "Who is this being that fills us with wonder?" --Show a god his limitations and he will be enthralled. Show a man his limitations and he will hate you.
