"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."

The Wisdom of the Sands, Saint-Exupery

Great quote, but even a Francophile like me thinks that Saint-Exupery was overrated.

If a Francophile is a fan of the immaculate reception than I'm one of them. If, as I suspect, it has more to do with France than I can only subscribe to liking that huge guy with the long hair and beard on the French natl. rugby side. He is both mesmarizing and frightening.

Growing up landlocked makes the call of the sea hard to hear.
