Wisdom of the Long View

If you want to build a ship, don’t herd 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.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

    But the taskmasters can’t tame the Indwelling Spirit who instills the longing for the Sea in some even as they toil to build a ship that only the privileged are allowed to sail. And when the Teacher comes to model the Way, they all follow after Him.
