Tuesdays Are For Inspiration

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks & work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
-Antoine de Saint-Expery

It's hard to make people love something.
It's pretty much impossible to make someone love something you don't.
But what if we lived lives where what we loved was evident and by setting that example, invited others to love those things as well?
We wouldn't just teach people to complete assignments, but to long for the endless immensity of the sea and that's serious business.

That is exactly what you are good at, Grace. Making people long for the endless immensity of the sea.
