From Donald Miller's "To Own A Dragon"
"Upon finding a mentor, the young elephants musth cycle ends. The older and younger begin to travel together, to find food together, to protect each other the older one teaching the younger what elephant strength is for, and how to use it for the benefit of himself and the tribe.
Watching television that night, I wondered if humans arent like that, too. I began to wonder if we guys were designed to have a father, whose very presence would cause us to understand more accurately what our muscle is for, what we are supposed to do with our energy."
