University Quotes

The true University of these days is a Collection of Books.

Thomas Carlyle

The fact that in Germany the politics were of the Right and in the United States of the Left should not mislead us. In both places the universities gave way under the pressure of mass movements, and did so in large measure because they thought those movements possessed a moral truth superior to any the university could provide. Commitment was understood to be profounder than science, passion than reason, history than nature, the young than the old.

Paul Chambers

University politics are vicious precisely because the stakes are so small.

Henry Kissinger

The quality of a university is measured more by the kind of student it turns out than the kind it takes in.

Robert J. Kibbee
