Charles Dudley Warner
As a nation we have the right to decide our own affairs, to mould our own future. This does not pose any danger to anybody. Our nation is fully aware of the responsibility for its own fate in the complicated situation of the contemporary world.
A liberal education... frees a man from the prison-house of his class, race, time, place, background, family and even his nation.
Robert M. Hutchins
