The Last Conversation | ANCIENT SOURCE

How long will it take me before I am as wise as you?—the student asks his teacher.

Teacher: Five years.

Student: This is a very long time. What about if I work twice as hard?

Teacher: Then it will take ten.

Student: Ten! That is far too long. How about if I studied all day and well into the night, every night?

Teacher: Fifteen years.

Student: I don’t understand. Every time I promise to devote more energy to my goal, you tell me that it will take longer. Why?

Teacher: The answer is simple. With one eye fixed on the destination, there is only one left to guide you along the journey.
