You... Your Degree... and The Wizard of OZ
Do you remember when you were a child watching that marvelous
movie, The Wizard Of Oz? Let us go back in time for just
a moment to consider something that took place in that story.
the story goes, Dorothy and party finally met up with the Wizard
toward the end of the film and Dorothy insisted that he live up
to his end of a bargain they had made. She demanded that the wizard
grant all of their wishes as agreed. Do you recall that the scarecrow
wanted "a brain?"
The following is the advice that the Wizard of Oz imparted to
the scarecrow :
"Back where I come from we have Universities...seats of
great learning, where men go to become great thinkers...and when
they come out they think deep thoughts, and with no more brains
than you have. BUT, they have one thing you haven't got...A DIPLOMA."
"What you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness
has genius, power and magic in it."
-- Van Goeth
