Around 1200 B.C., an Israelite leader by the name of Moses led his people out of Egypt and back towards the land of Canaan. Moses, however, died before the Israelites reached Canaan. His successor, a man by the name of Joshua, continued the trek and eventually the now much larger nation of Israel returned to Canaan.
I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestioned ability of a man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.
Henry David Thoreau
