-The primary purpose of a liberal education is to make one’s mind a pleasant place in which to spend one’s time.
-Nothing can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.
-The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts: to return love for hate, to include the excluded, and to say, “I was wrong.”
-Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
-Never take the advice of someone who has not had your kind of trouble.
