You Do What You Are

Alex Cross: You do what you are Jezzie.

Jezzie Flannigan: You mean you are what you do.

Alex Cross: No, I mean, you do what you are. You’re born with a gift. If not that, then you get good at something along the way. And what you’re good at, you don’t take for granted. You don’t betray it.

Jezzie Flannigan: What if you do, betray your gift?

Alex Cross: Then you betray yourself. That’s a sad thing.

Erica Stone advocates for a new, open-access relationship between the public and scholars, making the case that academics should publish in more accessible media.

And may you live to be 150 years old, and the last voice you hear is mine.
