Dag Hammarskjold was quoted as follows...
"Never measure the height of a mountain
until you have reached the top.Then you
will see how low it was."
As a boy, we thought Jesse Owen's broad
(long) jump record would stand forever.
We can remember when the four minute
mile was thought to be unbreakable and
heady was anyone able to pole vault higher
than 15 feet.
Today, just about the time we say "that time
is as low as it can go," lo and behold, another
tenth of a second is eclipsed from the record.
Likewise, with the passage of time, today's
difficulties become tomorrow's simplicities.
It's always easy to reach the other side of
a mountain, once we've reached the top.
