“You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have built are but the foundation of your giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation.
“And I too am my own forerunner, for the long shadow stretching before me at sunrise shall gather under my feet at the noon hour. Yet another sunrise shall lay another shadow before me, and that also shall be gathered at another noon.”
by Khalil Gibran from “The Forerunner” (1920)
