Jill Hurst-Wahl, professor at Syracuse's iSchool, offers some very timely advice for LIS students in a recent post. I thought so much of it, I'd like to share it with my colleagues here at Maryland.

"What I want LIS students to know"

"Mastery of language affords remarkable power." - Frantz Fanon

[T]he tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream.... It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is sin."
Benjamin Elijah Mays, American educator and president of Morehouse College (1895-1984)
