Views

"I was a college teacher – yeah, I worked with computers, but I grew people. My achievements were not the things I did, but the reflected glow from some of my students’ meteoric rise into the stratosphere of professional achievements. I watched them with pride and often envied their successes. I often wished I could soar with them. But I knew that I was not to rocket – I was merely a launching pad. I was not a rocketeer, just a stone cutter laying foundation stones from where to step upward. My students needed to build their own edifices. I just had to make sure we would not start on sand."
