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
