Dale Carnegie tells of meeting two men doing the exact job – helping
break marble to be used in
St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York
City. The first man was absent a smile and seemed to be laboring
very difficultly. Seeing this man’s struggle to find enjoyment in his
work Carnegie asked him what he was doing.

“I’m breaking up this marble so it can be used in this building,” he
replied. Later Carnegie asked the other man who was noticeably the
opposite of the first. This man was whistling and smiling and swinging
his hammer with much more enthusiasm. Carnegie once again asked
the question.

This time the answer was quite different.

anecdotal story collection designed to generate “ah-
