HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

July 16, 2007
Wisdom from Polonius


Carl Schurz

"Ideals are like stars. You will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you will reach your destination."


“If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.”


“Our country, right or wrong. When right, to be kept right; when wrong, to be put right.”
