“If you live a virtuous life you will be happy. Of course, happiness will probably be nothing like you think it’s going to be. It won’t be.”
ASSORTED QUOTES BY PROFESSOR JOHN WYATT:
- “They will tell you college is not the real world. They will tell you the real world is where important things happen. What they call the real world is where you worry about your mortgage and car payments. College is where you think about truth, justice, and beauty; the life of the mind. I tell you that is the real world; that is where important things happen.”
- “Have faith in me and faith in yourself and the sky’s the limit for you.”
- "The most important duty of an educator is to create moral human beings."
- “If you're going to get upset about injustice, get upset about the big ones. The trick is getting to the destination.”
- “Now, if you want to have a park named after you, you're in the right place.”
- "I'm going to strangle you if you mispronounce 'AORIST' one more time!"
- “The question is whether you will try in vain to escape death, go mad because of it, or heroically face this ultimate fact of your life and let it inspire you to really work because that’s the only way you’re going to find happiness.”
- “You gotta work hard.”
