He gives him a whole smattering of advice - how education is really, in the end, worth the time, how Holden should find what he's passionate about b/c it'll prevent him from a fall...he gets pretty chatty in this scene.

He writes down this quote and tells him to keep it with him:

"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one."
