I am reminded about Dwight D. Eisenhower. During World War II it was
reported that he tossed a piece of string on the table and said
something to the effect. ...that string is like an Army, Push it and it
will not go anywhere, Pull it and it will follow ...
I am also remindeded of the campfire run on:
Enter a boy pulling a rope.
MC: Why are you pulling the rope?
Boy: Did you ever try pushing it?
