The Mentor's Whim
byeth J.V. Kroket

-A standardized pamphlet given to all those aspiring wisemen-to-be.

Seek no talent, for it will come to you. Instead,

Meander in wait, not overeager lest you automatically choose the wrong
Discover a stickler you're willing to Die for
Apprentice their past in order to
Harness their talent and calm their rage
Mold their uncertain future and fate
Practice their patience
Know well their desires, but
Care not for whom their dreams indulge.
Believe that they will do the right thing when the time is right.
Disprove of perfection by
Letting them fly.
