This was sent to me in an email. I was so impressed with it I decided to include it on my web site. There is a great message at the end as well as the name of the carver…
JUST OLD PENCILS!
A PENCIL MAKER TOLD THE PENCIL 5 IMPORTANT
LESSONS JUST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN THE BOX:
1.) EVERYTHING YOU DO WILL ALWAYS LEAVE A MARK.
2.) YOU CAN ALWAYS CORRECT THE MISTAKES YOU MAKE.
3.) WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS WHAT IS INSIDE OF YOU.
4.) IN LIFE , YOU WILL UNDERGO PAINFUL SHARPENINGS,
WHICH WILL ONLY MAKE YOU BETTER.
5.) TO BE THE BEST PENCIL, YOU MUST ALLOW YOURSELF TO
BE HELD AND GUIDED BY THE HAND THAT HOLDS YOU.
These pencil carvings are the work of Dalton Ghetti.
