Mentor


A mentor...

Is a master
who molds
his student
to become
a master like him.

Have you meet your mentor?

    You are wise. The student almost always becomes the master. I remember the day, always will, when my mentor told me there was little else he could teach me.

It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
