I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’
The mysteries of the natural world, from human psychology to the farthest star, never cease to fascinate.
Wonder is that feeling felt in the presence of natural beauty- beauty which is all the more astounding for having been self-created, free of purpose.
