Today's Quote

"Now, I feel that there is too little idealism also in contemporary culture. At the elite schools, it seems that the faculties go out of their way to inject their best students with a kind of nihilistic irony about life, a constant pose of supercilious critique of great literature and art and of the great traditional values of patriotism and so on... I think it is the obligation of teachers to help students to think in the loftiest ideals, to think of the highest achievements in the whole history of humanity."
-Camille Paglia
