Quote

"The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind - creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers, and meaning makers.  These people - artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers - will now reap society's riches rewards and share its greatest joys."
