True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.

~ Socrates 
Be sensitive to different values and cultures.

Consider your words carefully; they are powerful.

Learn acceptance and appreciation for our uniqueness; celebrate others, as well as showing tolerance. 

Compete and compare against your best self, collaborate with others.
