But being human, I can sense more than I can know; I can believe more than I can prove. As a plant seeks the light because it is its nature to do so, man seeks that which is good because decency is inherent in his nature. Just as I must exercise my creative abilities or lose them, so I must cultivate my abilities to make right, ethical and moral judgments and to respond to spiritual influences, or I will become callous, insensitive, and spiritually dead.
I believe that personal happiness results from the use of our intelligence and creative abilities in the service of others. Those of us who work with young people are fortunate, for the opportunity for service is ever present.
