As we start a new week, let us be inspired by this sculpture by Mr Victor Tan Wee Tar that is nestled in the beautiful Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.
In this sculpture called “Passing of Knowledge”, a continuous stream of water connects a larger figure and a smaller figure – “knowledge, like water, is vital to life”, and “the water is symbolic of the passing of knowledge from generation to generation”.
The sign that accompanies the sculpture explains: “This embodies the Rotarians’ hope that the values cultivated by The 4 Way Test will continue to be a guiding principle in human relations for our future generations.”
And what it is the 4-Way Test?
Of the things we think, say, or do, let us think:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to ALL CONCERNED?
- Will it Build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to ALL CONCERNED?
Wishing one and all a great week ahead!
