Every man’s goal of pursuing happiness in the fulfillment of life can only be achieved by attaining the most in his individual development, and by contributing the greatest to the cause of humanity. The first is developing himself into a whole man, and the second is responding to his social responsibility to his fellow man. The true measure of a man is not found in what he can do, nor what he intends to do, but in what he has done and in what he is doing.
Service is my passion; teaching is my mission.
