There were two good quotes I heard today:
(1)"Don't let academia fool you into believing there might be an expected level of intelligence among people who are required to make pretty important decisions. Every time I wonder if I should consider a doctorate I have an encounter with someone who has one that totally shatters what it should represent."
I wrote this one, posted it to FB after reflecting on (yet another) ridiculous conversation at work today. I think it's pretty good but only because it is unfortunately true.
A way better quote, one that I think is significant enough to positively affect young people's lives, was one by the teenage daughter of someone who I consider to be one of the best parents I've ever known (I believe her child saying this is part proof):
(2) "In teenager, $100 seems like infinity money but then you buy a couple things and realize how expensive things are."
Isn't that genius?
