The endless immensity

I love this quotation, which is attributed to the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.  It resonates with  my role as a teacher, but it’s also pretty pertinent to my life as a mom.

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

What do I want my boys to long for?  And how can I help them get there?

Something to ponder.
