Catch a childhood dream – Quote of the day

·

Currently, I’m constantly stumbling upon new blogs, mainly on the subject of Innovation and the like. On [Jack Vinson’s][0] I found [this post about catching a childhood dream][1]. Obviously, this made me think about my childhood dreams. There were quite a few, I guess, but the ones that stick in my head are the following:

  • Airline Pilot * Electronics * Inventor

However, when I was like 7 to 9 years old, I had one predominant childhood dream:

  • Sailing the seven seas – becoming a captain of a [really big ship][2]

Today, I’m not the captain of a [really big ship][2], but in some way, this dream still remains in my heart – I love the sea and one of my favourite quotes is the following one:

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.

[Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Famous pilot and writer]
