Greetings studentsmy hope is that our journey together will be laden with intellectual self-discoveries. Undoubtedly we will be amused and will laugh; at other times we will contemplate, reflect, and write. As we start our year together, consider this axiom: 

Trust is earned, respect is given, and kindness is demonstrated; betrayal of any one is to lose all three. 

Moreover, ponder these quotes:

“The mind is everything; what you think you become”  – Siddartha Guatama Buddha, founder of Buddhism

“Lift the stone, and you will find me; cleave the wood, and I am there” – Jesus (G. Thom. saying 77)

“What’s in there?” “Only what you take with you”  – Luke & Yoda, Empire Strikes Back, author: George Lucas

“We know what we are, but know not what we may be”  Ophelia, Hamlet 4.5.43-44, author: William Shakespeare
