The function of the university is not simply to teach bread-winning, or
to furnish teachers for the public schools or to be a centre of polite
society; it is, above all, to be the organ of that fine adjustment
between real life and the growing knowledge of life, an adjustment which
forms the secret of civilization. ~ W.E. B. DuBois
There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the
conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide. ~Ralph
Waldo Emerson
