Another gem from Marvin Specter


There was a time when the NAFE members from the New York City area would meet for dinner every month.  While waiting at the bar for a table, a young man asked Marvin about the NAFE pin he was wearing on his lapel.  Marvin explained that the group were all members of NAFE and told him a bit about the Academy.

The man asked Marvin: "I'm an engineer.  Do you have any advice for a young engineer?

Marvin answered:  "One day in your career, someone will ask you to do something you know is wrong.  Have the courage to say no."
