An interesting quote

Will Durant once said, “Sixty years ago I knew everything; now I know nothing; education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance”.I remember being twenty and thinking I knew it all so I shouldn’t be surprised when undergrad students have that attitude.  Maybe that’s what makes teaching in the undergrad system so much fun – the students’ confidence and  courage to actually try to change the world.  That reminds me of a seminar I was in when the presenter ended by explaining how he was going to change the world.  Nothing big, just little steps here and there that would indeed have a significant impact in aggregate.  So I suppose that this is where I state how I’m going to change the world?  Nope, that would be too big an insight to leave here at this point, instead I will ask myself the question, “How am I going to change the world?”  I’ve got a few ideas, again nothing grandiose like Bono trying to eradicate world poverty (good on ya!).  Stay posted!
