" I hate intellectuals. They are from the top down. I am from the bottom up." ~ Frank Lloyd Wright.
It's a funny thing about the old top down concept. The great coach, leader or intellectual we feel has all the answers. The shiny marble we place on top. If he is really good ~ If he does his job well enough ~ There should come a time when we don't need him. If he does really well we should be able to take him away and the structure still stands.
The very best build strong foundations from the bottom up.
