The charter was written by men in wigs who ate mutton for lunch. It is more than noble and every bit unachievable. We do not wear wigs, we do not eat mutton, but we do aim to take up wild, difficult, culturally relevant tasks with their same unmasked enthusiasm.

May we be positive, humble, forthright, and big-hearted
in these pursuits.
