GIVING UP TOO SOON

never_give_up__japanA man meets a guru in the road and the man asks the guru, “Which way is success?” The be-robed, bearded sage speaks not, but points to a place off in the distance. The man, thrilled by the prospect of quick and easy success, rushes off in the appropriate direction.
