A guidance counselor who has made a fetish of security, or who has unwittingly surrendered his thinking to economic determinism, may steer a youth away from his dream of becoming a poet, an artist, a musician or any other of thousands of things, because it offers no security, it does not pay well, there are no vacancies, it has no “future.
— Henry M. Wriston , President Emeritus, Brown University

  1. Not to “dumb down” this quote and compare it to a tv show, but it reminds me of the episode of Ed where Carol was berated by her colleagues for not steering Warren Cheswick away from his new-found career passion because it would be “risky”. That was one of those episodes where the makers of the show just “got” it.
