THE PAPERS OF DR. COLEMAN H. BENEDICT

Accession #2010-006


"The Practical benefits of a true education are going to show in the months to come. Moderation, self-control, and thinking are going to stand as good stead. It will not be pleasant to watch the world go mad, but we shall at least have the satisfaction of not following it. We can't all have the keen mind of Socrates, but we can have his courage. He, too, lived in a world that fell apart."

                                                                                                Coleman Hamilton Benedict
