"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Just think about these three rather mind-boggling statistics to put into perspective the rate of change from futurist Jim Carroll:

1) Sixty-five percent of the children who are now in preschool will work in jobs that do not exist today.

2) For any scientific degree today (e.g., agriculture, architecture, medical), it is estimated that half of what students learn in their freshman year is obsolete by the time they graduate.

3) In the technology industry, companies have three to six months to sell their product before it becomes obsolete.
