A man died and went to heaven. When he met St. Peter at the pearly gates, he had a question. "Pete, I've been a student of military history my entire life, and one question has vexed me. Who was the greatest general of all? Was it Alexander the Great, Napolean, or some other?" Without pausing, Peter said, "That's easy--it was that man right there." And he pointed. The dead guy was stunned, "But Peter, I knew that man on earth. He wasn't a general--he was a janitor!" "Yes, but he would have been the greatest general who ever lived, if he had only been a general." How often we fail to live up to our potential.
