Shrine of Learning and Wisdom

Comment on Article

There once was a new student starting her freshman year at the "College Among the Pines". She seemed lost, or maybe, searching for something.

A passing senior asked if she could be of any help. "Tell me," asked the freshman, "Where can I find the shrine of learning and wisdom? I've looked on my campus map, but I can't locate it."

"Open your eyes, breathe deeply, listen carefully, and focus your attention," the senior told the freshman. She continued, "There is no shrine for learning and wisdom. It is all around you, among the people, the classrooms, the pines, You are already at the place of learning and wisdom!"
