TED Talk About Passionate Living & Lifelong Learning

“Live each day as if it is your last. Learn as if you’ll live forever.”  Mahatma Gandhi

This TED talk by Wofford College President Ben Dunlap tells the story of Sandor Teszler, an Hungarian Holocaust survivor who taught him about passionate living and lifelong learning.  President Dunlap’s powerful storytelling leads to what he’s passionate about — an “inextinguishable, undaunted appetite for learning and experience” — a task he says we know “will be hard.”
