■ Message
Message to undergraduate students: You ought to accomplish three things as a student: Learn the care of the self, develop a useful skill, and find your joy. All else is superfluous. Message to graduate students: Your mind is a muscle, use it or lose it, but better to lose your mind than to use it for animosity, dishonesty, exploitation, and injustice.
