The distracted Astronomer

The distracted Astronomer :


An astronomer was in the habit of going out every night to observe the stars.

But no sooner he was outdoors, he was totally absorbed in the sights above him, that he did not look where he was putting his feet, so once he fell into a hole in the ground.

A passer-by heard his shouts and ran to help him. How do you hope to discover what's up in the sky,' he said to the astronomer, 'when you're not even capable of seeing what's under your nose?'

“Many men, while following their dreams, show themselves incapable of facing up to reality."
