"IT IS SAID THAT THE GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF ALL, IS TO STAND UPON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS, AND CONTINUE THEIR GOOD WORKS. IS THIS SO?"
"NO, IT IS THAT IN THE FUTURE, THERE ARE THOSE WHO SEEK TO STAND UPON YOUR SHOULDERS, AND CONTINUE YOUR GOOD WORKS."
The Student was ready. He had passed all the Exams, and was considered to be the Brightest and Most Capable of them all.
Yet, much Troubled him. His Teachers, Instructors, and Counselors were Highly Accomplished, and he had learned much. However, as he faced Graduation, his Life Path was still not Charted.
Told of all the Things he could do, and the paths he might take, it was Frustrating not to be able to single one out. Finally, he Decided what to do, and it shocked those close to him.
Many Years Before, there had lived in the area an Individual of such Wisdom, that All sought his Counsel. Teacher or Student, Man or Woman, it mattered not. All came to ask advice, for Failure never seemed to find him. It was said that his Intellect was so great, that to Limit it to the Classroom or Public Forum, would be a Crime against Reason.
However, as the Years Passed, the "Wise One," as all came to address him, grew so Exhausted by the constant Demand on his Time, that he left the City one Morning, to live a Solitary Life in the Mountains. He had acquired enough Wealth through the Years, (Gifts from Grateful Individuals whom he had Helped), to arrange for Food and other Supplies to be Delivered at a Specific Location, which he could pick up at his leisure. This was to be done on Certain Days, and Payment would be Tendered for the continuation of such services.
No one had seen the "Wise One" for several years, even though a few did search for him. It was said that he would be found when it was necessary, and not before.
