“The rung of the ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.”-Thomas Henry Huxley
A great quote by Thomas Henry Huxley.
I think of reaching my goals is just like climbing a ladder. Take the next step up and reach a little higher and closer to the goal.
Ladders also remind me of the time when I was little I followed my grandpa up the ladder while he was cleaning the chimney. He just about lost his footing when he saw me step off the ladder. Grandma was frantic trying to find me. When she realized I was gone, grandpa stopped what he was doing to bring me back into the house. Of course, I didn’t see anything wrong or dangerous, if Grandpa could do it I can do it too. The following year, he let me stay up there with him and passed him the tools he needed.
Do you have any stories or memories with ladders? What’s your thought on this thoughtful quote by Thomas Henry Huxley?
