Robert Greene Quotes: It Was Only By Escaping Into The Desert

It Was Only By Escaping Into The Desert That Moses And The Jews Were Able To Solidify Their Identity And Reemerge As A Social And Political Force.
Jesus Spent His Forty Days In The Wilderness, And Mohammed, Too, Fled Mecca At A Time Of Great Peril For A Period Of Retreat. He And Just A Handful Of His Most Devoted Supporters Used This Period To Deepen Their Bonds, To Understand Who They Were And What They Stood For, To Let Time Work Its Good. Then This Little Band Of Believers Reemerged To Conquer Mecca And The Arabian Peninsula And Later, After Mohammed's Death, To Defeat The Byzantines And The Persian Empire, Spreading Islam Over Vast Territories. Around The World Every Mythology Has A Hero Who Retreats, Even To Hades Itself In The Case Of Odysseus, To Find Himself.
