You’re the Greatest


A man died and met Saint Peter at the gates of heaven.  Recognizing the saint’s knowledge and wisdom, he wanted to ask him a question. “Saint Peter,” he said, “ I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me, who was the greatest general of all times?”

Peter quickly responded, “O, that is a simple question. It’s that man right over there.”

The man looked where Peter was pointing and answered, “You must be mistaken. I knew that man on earth, and he was just a common laborer.”

“That’s right,” Peter remarked, “But he would have been the greatest general of all time- if he had been a general.”

– Mark Twain
