‘Seek fulfillment’

I encourage you to seek fulfillment. Set professional goals that will make you and your families and your friends proud of your professional contributions—because your contributions have improved the lives of other people. That impact is enduring.

‘Life is a gift’

I also encourage you to pursue a life of meaning. Life is a gift—a precious gift. And to lead a meaningful life, you should share that gift with people who need you.

‘We believe in you’

Through your character and commitment, please help us create a world that is more peaceful and more just. We believe in that brighter future, because we believe in you.
