The Live Deliberately Essay Contest is open to students around the world. In 750 words or less, using your understanding of the following quote, discuss and expand on its meaning while integrating your own experiences and observations of the world: "Many an object is not seen, though it falls within the range of our visual ray, because it does not come within the range of our intellectual ray, i.e., we are not looking for it. So, in the largest sense, we find only the world we look for."
