I wish there were something I could do to express how important I this idea is. I want to shout it from rooftops, but I know that doesn’t really help. So, here it is. Let them as has ears hear it. 🙂

“If you want to build a ship,
don’t drum up people together
to collect wood and don’t
assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them
to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

— St. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
