Men As Skyscrapers

I thought I’d follow yesterday’s post up with a quote from the brilliant memoir, The Tender Bar. It was penned by the Pulitzer prize winning writer, J.R. Moehringer, who uses his own life to show how important positive role models are in helping the next generation of boys become men of honor and integrity.

People don’t understand how many men it takes to build one good man. Next time you’re in Manhattan and you see one of those mighty sky-scrapers going up, pay attention to how many men are engaged in the enterprise. It takes as many men to build a sturdy man, son, as it does to build a tower. -Father Amtrak
