"Will you be like the rest of the world?"

"You are going out from this place, so called educated, pass some exams, and go out into the world.
The world . . . is like a jungle, where everybody is against another. Each human being is fighting the other human beings, and society is built like that.
You're going to be thrown out into that world, where you will go to University, get a degree, get married, get a job, and all the rest of it; children and so on and on. But around you, in your office, everywhere, there is this endless battle going on. It's really like a jungle.
How does one prepare oneself to live in that jungle? That is really a very important educational question . . . . "
