One of my fundamental philosophies about life is what this sculpture is all about. “When we quit learning, we quit living.” The ability to remember and apply this principle throughout ones life, I believe, is a major key to happiness. Changing and growing represent upward movement and we all possess that power. The ability to listen and draw upon the many sources of inspiration that constantly surround us determines our growth. The individual that succumbs to close-mindedness and short-sidedness closes the door to vision itself, and with vision or the ability to see beyond, we can overcome anything.
Although well along in years, this person who could easily be our mentor, prefers to be the student.
