Every day my iGoogle page gives me a quote of the day. Today’s quote struck me, and I’m trying to work out why…

I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.
Mitch Hedberg, Comedy Central Presents
American comedian (1968 – 2005)

On a basic level, it amuses me – these sort of observations on objects and people make me smile. But I’m thinking there must be a deeper level to it, it’s resonating with me for some reason. Is it to say that people who feel like they have broken down are still worthwhile members of society? Or from a Christian perspective, those who feel dry and weary can still bless God and his world?

What do you think?
