for your favorite student (of any age)...

From Howard Thurman (November 18, 1899 – April 10, 1981):

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

An antidote to formulaic "prepare-yourself-for-the-job-market" approaches.
