...and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing,” once said Abraham Lincoln.
At ADA, we matter, because we learn, create and transform. We have asked one man to cut a tree. We have asked another man to plant five. In the woods of homogeneity, we have aspired to create tolerance and diversity of trees. We have never hesitated to help turn one building into four, as long as they will make our country stand tall. We have asked weak ones to step aside and helped strong ones to step in. We have reached out and found inspiration in those who have managed to relate to our passion and creativity. All this for the sake of one belief: a public cause, which is bigger than life. In the fast pace of life, less we have noticed at the lest that we have also grown our own tree, which has forever been a real thing throughout.
Hope is not a strategy. Live your life to its fullest. Don’t just pass through it. And live a meaningful and impactful life. Dream, but make your dreams pragmatic, then, turn your dreams into other people’s passion. And no matter what, don’t ever stop learning. Learn, create and transform. Become a real thing, not just a reputation.
