TITLE: Remembering Generosity AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: February 03, 2014 4:07 PM DESC: ----- BODY: For a variety of reasons, the following passage came to mind today. It is from a letter that Jonathan Schoenberg wrote as part of the "Dear Me, On My First Day of Advertising" series on The Egotist forum:
You got into this business by accident, and by the generosity of people who could have easily been less generous with their time. Please don't forget it.
It's good for me to remind myself frequently of this. I hope I can be as generous with time to my students and colleagues as as so many of my professors and colleagues were with their time. Even when it means explaining nested for-loops again. -----
