“American universities are organized on the principle of the nuclear rather than the extended family. Graduate students are grimly trained to be technicians rather than connoisseurs. The old German style of universal scholarship has gone.”
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”
“Before you speak Listen. Before you write Think. Before you criticise Wait. Before you Quit Try. Before you walk away Give them another chance. Were all human and make mistakes. Before you pray Forgive.”
