The Tower by Richard Paul Evans
This story is about a man who wishes to be great. He thinks in order to be great, he needs everyone to look up at him. He then builds a tall tower, but soon discovers it is lonely. He then climbs down and becomes generous and says, “to be great is not to be higher than another, but to lift another higher”.
