Ted Talks: Ben Dunlap on why we're here

Ben Dunlap, a Rhodes scholar, ballet dancer, poet and lecturer talks about learning and inspiration by telling some stories. The man breaths in life and exhales passion.

"Live each day as if it will be your last said Mahatma Ghandi. Learn as if you will live for ever. This is what I am passionate about. It is precisely this. It is this inextinguishable, undaunted appetite for learning and experience, no matter how risible, no matter how esoteric, no matter how seditious it might seem. This defines the imagined futures of... everybody here. This is our task. We know it will be hard."
