Wisdom from Polonius

Mohandas K. Gandhi

"Real education consists in drawing the best out of yourself.  What better book can there be than the book of humanity?"

Albert Camus

"For if there is a sin against life, it consists not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life."

Felix Adler

"The conception of worth, that each person is an end per se, is not a mere abstraction.  Our interest in it is not merely academic.  Every outcry against the oppression of some people by other people, or against what is morally hideous, is the affirmation of the principle that a human being as such is not to be violated.  A human being is not to be handled as a tool but is to be respected and revered."
