“A man has dreams of walking with giants. To carve his niche in the edifice of time.”
—Mr. Banks, in Disney’s Mary Poppins
I first saw Mary Poppins in 1964. I was seven years old. It was a cold, snowy day. Mom and I took several buses into downtown Philadelphia, to stand in line for the big event.
This technicolor miracle of Disney magic had people buzzing for weeks. Beyond the special effects was a heartfelt story of exceptional characters. Today’s quote by George Banks, the family patriarch in the film, is powerful coaching for young boys and girls, as well as the older generation.
What are your dreams? What niches are you carving? What giants do you walk with? How will you leave your mark on the edifice of time?
What efforts can and will you make in the years ahead to make an even bigger impact on the edifice of time?
