As much as a rebbe can do for the people, the people can do something even greater for their rebbe.

The rebbe can teach. He can guide. He can inspire.

But he can’t get us to drink the water. To take ownership of the vision he has given us.

Yet it's only then that his investment pays off. That, indeed, is the essence of everything.
