The visiting historian was disposed 

to be argumentative.

"Do not our efforts change the course 

of human history?" he demanded.

"Oh yes, they do," said the Master.

"And have not our human labors 

changed the earth?"

"They certainly have," said the Master.

"Then why do you teach that human effort 

is of little consequence?"

Said the Master, 

"Because when the wind subsides, 

the leaves still fall."
