What could be wiser than to save our Earth?
No motivation is of higher worth
Than to direct our vast intelligence
At man-made problems that have grown immense,
For higher education’s highest goal
Is cultivating that which makes us whole:
The wisdom to decide what serves us best
And then to act on what we have professed
Bringing about a sane and thriving world
In which our best potentials are unfurled.
While contemplation will begin this course,
Wise actions are the necessary force
By which our cogitations are applied:
Reflection and engagement are allied.
