Magnanimous

Greg Yakovlev
Class of 2011
Electrical Engineering

Magnanimous represents my magnificent desire for power and to use it for the benefit of the world, the desire to possess knowledge, to use it wisely, to manipulate events to my own hidden goals, be they benevolent or now. Knowledge is power, use it well! The destiny about or occur has many turns and events, like a violent abrupt river, yet if one possesses enough knowledge and wisdom, one can control it's paths. There are many ways to look at an action, many ethical points. Yet one must know that one's actions need not to be ethical to be positive in the end. The ends justify the means, one who realizes this is magnanimous.
