A Quote by Paul D. Shafer on acquaintance, action, art, children, history, influence, life, mathematics, music, people, philosophy, psychology, religion, science, and words

The most important single influence in the life of a person is another person. We may say to our children: Here is art, science, philosophy, mathematics, music, psychology, history, religion - and we may open innumerable doors along the corridors of living so that they will have a broad and even a minute acquaintance with the segments of life; but these introductions are not as important as knowing people whose characters and actions, personalities and words have grown after similar introductions and have become worthy of emulation.
