Perhaps a review — and awareness — of the past may make us better geologists in the future.

It is a clear sign of my advancing age: Young people are asking me for career advice. It is possible to deluge young people with well-meaning advice.

Let me keep it simple:

Kids, do the important thing — FIND SOMETHING TO DO THAT YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE.

Every career problem fades away when your work is your passion; after all, passion is a more powerful engine than a paycheck.

The route to career success is found by working at something that challenges and excites you.

In 1854, exactly 150 years ago, the American Henry David Thoreau observed, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation."

Don't let that phrase be the summary of your life.
