I cannot give you a specific reason why I selected this quote for my Spark. It just spoke to me and seemed appropriate for the present time.

I was unfamiliar with the author, Max de Pree, so I suspect you may be as well. Max De Pree was an American businessman and writer. His book Leadership is an Art has sold more than 800,000 copies. In 1992, De Pree was inducted into Junior Achievement’s U.S. Business Hall of Fame. He was involved with the Max De Pree Center for Leadership at Fuller Theological Seminary (established in 1996 as the De Pree Center) since its establishment.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!
