Advice to Students
Your lives can be rich even if you are not wealthy. A job well done is its own reward . . . not all rewards are financial. There is dignity, and even nobility in staying the course and keeping your word. Finishing what one has begun and doing it well is deeply satisfying. Earn enough money for what you need and for most of what you want, but not so much that its pursuit destroys the better part of you.
Honor your commitments. Write a second draft. Read. Vote.
