Dear San Domenico,
What is the purpose of life? Were we born into this beautiful life just to pass our time? To collect possessions or prestige? To seek our own satisfaction? No, each of us has a deeper purpose, which gives our life meaning. And our job is to inspire our students to find that purpose.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
