    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.
