A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what he is talking about.

Miguel de Unamuno

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.

Charles W. Eliot

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education... no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both.

Abraham Flexner

I'm re-reading the Abraham Flexner quote. It seems that the pro war people knows how to make money, but the educators do not.
