    Mark Twain
       Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail.
      What you gain at one end you lose at the other. 
       It's like feeding a dog on his own tail.
       It won't fatten the dog.

       -Mark Twain, Speech 11/23/1900

         From LIFE magazine, August 29, 1907

     The ideal condition
     Would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct;
     But since we are all likely to go astray,
     The reasonable thing is to learn from those who can teach.
           -Sophocles, Antigone
    Kurt Vonnegut  
      I give you my word of honor that we love you and need you.
      We love you simply because you are of our species. 
      You have been born.
    That is enough.”
      Commencement Address, Southampton College, c.May 1981
