A Little Help From Your Friends

Do you like this story?

Alex Haley, the author of Roots, used to keep a picture in his office of a turtle sitting atop a fence. He kept it there to remind him of a lesson he had learned years before; “If you see a turtle on a fence post, you know he had some help.”

Haley remarked, “Anytime I start thinking, ‘Wow, isn’t this marvellous what I’ve done!’ I look at that picture and remember how this turtle – me – got up on that post.”
