We have to teach them things they haven’t done before so they can be challenged. And then we have to give them plenty of praise because this is what we work for, not money. We work for gratification. Money pays the bills and that’s fortunate. We want somebody to tell us we’ve done a good job. These folks are no different from anybody else. — Geraldine Schwartz, Founder of WORC
