Perhaps we should let Gordon Kingston have the last word on this Mr R.
Writing in his ever elegant language, Gordon's feature The Little Prince: The Open Mind draws our attention to The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. For those who want they can read the feature for themselves and take from it whatever is relevant to them. For me these lines however struck a cord.
“What are we always ranting about on here? Modern hands plucking unnecessarily at the works of ancients’ minds. Or, heedless, letting the same dreams crumble back to dirt.”
