What If Money Were No Object

“What do you desire? What makes you itch? What sort of a situation would you like?” Alan Watts, an English philosopher and writer, routinely asked these very questions to college students in the U.S. during the 1960s and 1970s. Back then, as in today, many students had no idea what they wanted to do after graduation. Watts’ timeless wisdom and guidance to them, as illustrated in this cartoon, strip offers a colourful and poignant reminder to follow your dreams.
