From today's A.Word.A.Day . . . is this trying to tell me something?

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up 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." These timeless words of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the French author and aviator, sum up what it means to lead. How tight a ship do you run? Are you the mainstay for your organization or just a figurehead?

Wonderful thought to share.
I had no idea he was also an aviator.
"The Little Prince" was definitely a leader.

Yes, it's clearly a signal...

Nicely put, too. You writers always have interesting ways of expressing concepts to others.
