I was reading a short novel (116 pages): Jacob's Journey by Noah ben Shea. Apparently this guy, Jacob a baker was really great with one line sayings. He always had the right thing to say to anyone at the right time. Sorta' like a wise man or holy man.
Anyway, Jacob was a baker who was responsible for opening in the morning and get the ovens ready and the first batch of bread baking. An old man met him at the back door and came in with Jacob.
Here are a few lines from the book.
- The old man said, “What will the others say when they discover that you have taken a man like me into the bakery?” Jacob said, “What would they have said about me if I had not taken you in? “But I'm not your responsibility,” said the old man. “Perhaps you are right,” said Jacob, smiling, “but how I conduct myself is my responsibility.” Max, one of the young men in the bakery, said, “Hey Jacob! Who was that guy I saw leaving earlier?” “A teacher,” answered Jacob. “That old man? asked Max. “Those from whom we do not learn reflect only our own ignorance,” said Jacob.
So, the book goes on like that: little one liners. By the time I got to the end of the book, I decided that I would not want to meet a guy that had wise one-liners with every breath. Overall, it was pretty nice book and there was another book preceding this one entitled Jacob the Baker.
