Teaching students to soar  

Valedictory thoughts of an MIT humanist

"Soon after arriving at MIT, I came to realize that more than teaching subjects, I have really been teaching students.... I hope that I've taught them to take flight, to soar above and beyond the usual and the expected."   — Edward Baron Turk
