Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because
to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know
true ends from false, and lofty things from low.
To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's
progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity
through the centuries; and if one does not feel in
these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed
be deaf to the harmonies of life.
True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist,
but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment
James Russell Lowell
