“The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going”
– David Starr Jordan
How often do you read a quote and say to yourself, “Whoever said that was nothing like me, so this quote doesn’t apply to me”? If you’ve EVER said that then you’re wrong. It always applies to you. Do you think that David Starr Jordan, President of Stanford, meant what he said only for certain people?
Anyone can be that person that the world moves for. Whether it’s me as a kid in Queens trying to make my own clothing, Bill Gates in Seattle messing with computers in ’74 or you reading this right now.
