This passage reminds me of inversions. It’s may not be easy for us, or our students, to invert the first time we try it – it takes time, patience and understanding.
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single
thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical
path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must
think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
~ Henry David Thoreau
