imagination! I'd ask for a trillion billion dollars, my own space shuttle,
and a private continent!"

Knowing is not enough, you must apply.
Willing is not enough, you must do.

I think of the oak beams in the ceiling of College Hall at New College, Oxford. Last century, when the beams needed replacing, carpenters used oak trees that had been planted in 1386 when the dining hall was first built. The 14th century builder had planted the trees in anticipation of the time, hundreds of years in the future, when the beams would need replacing. Did the carpenters plant new trees to replace the beams again a few hundred years from now?
