because the sea lies beneath them.

If I wish to teach people,

I must serve them.

If I wish to lead people,

I must find out where they would like to go.

that word is


Real leaders have stopped keeping score.

They give and give

and do not stop giving.

I must consider this when I say

"I want to be a leader."
