  • The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically—that is the goal of true education.

  • Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.

  • Life's most persistent and urgent questions is, 'What are you doing for others?'

  • Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
