Quote of the Day: de Saint-Exupéry

James Gardens – Toronto

“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

A perspective our schools, workplaces, and interpersonal relationships could benefit from, we should seek to help inspire others to do their tasks and work for their own interest and benefit, rather than simply because they are being directed to do it.

Too often we get stuck in mechanical routines of life that can, over time, desensitize us to the bliss of living a life true to your inner self.

Let us work to help reignite the spark of self-love in others that helps them live peaceful, joyful, and liberated lives; that way, we can all work together, journeying along paths that are mutually inspiring and rewarding.
