"Universities should be safe havens where ruthless examination of realities
will not be distorted by the aim to please or inhibited by the risk of displeasure."

"I've worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves lives on a battlefield with a medal,
rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes,
but rewards those who can make money in securities with sums reaching into the billions.
I agree with Andrew Carnegie: Huge fortunes that flow in large part from society
should in large part be returned to society."
- Warren Buffet,
Chair, Berkshire Hathaway
"A professorship of theology should have no place in our institution."
- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826),
Founder, University of Virginia
