Isaiah, who was considered a prophet by Jews, Muslims and Christians, said that God views even a nation’s leader as a lowly worm.

You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the wisdom of this metaphor. It’s not meant to insult us, but rather to remind us that we are dust.

One day it’s going to be someone very close to you. One day it’s going to be you. Not a single one of us will escape our own death. Are you appreciating the moments you have before you return to dust?

Ultimately we’re lowly worms but while we’re on earth we’ve got a dance to do!
