Two bicycle repairmen in Dayton, Ohio, dreamed of flying. They went to the Dayton Public Library and checked out a book on the life and works of a German man named Lilienthal, who had succeeded in flying a glider. The two men were named Orville and Wilbur Wright. They began to explore all the possibilities of heavier-than-air flight. Almost everyone knows that in 1903 their dream became reality when they flew for the first time at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and launched the space age. But it was the influence of Lilienthal, and others, who inspired the Wright brothers to try the impossible.
We must never minimize the power of influence for either good or evil. Long after we are dead and gone, our influence will live on.
