A Quote by Tom Petty on college, life, and tom petty

"You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don't have. Drink 'til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does..."

A Quote by Sol Luckman on halloween, college, costume, mask, persona, excitement, life, curiosity, chapel hill, and franklin street

Jefferson Street at Halloween made a Grateful Dead concert look like a Quaker fish fry. I wanted to be the curious little cell that moves among all the other little cells and gets to know every last one of them.

Don't let anyone tell you that high school is supposed to be fun.  High school is to be endured.  College is fun.

A Quote by Earon on academia, university, college, education, corruption, academic life, business, religion, industry, and government

Academia was created by business, religion and government as an enclosure for intelligent, altruistic people to keep them occupied and feeling important, and distracted from exposing corruption and working for change.  Fortunately, this strategy hasn't always succeeded.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, academia, education, and college

It is in college that the clamps really start to come down, heavy-duty or professional-caliber ideologizing against radical ideas.  Even in very large departments of sociology or political science I couldn't find virtually any people who had read thinkers off the Approved list.  I was to discover over the decades that there is certainly a blacklist of sorts in philosophy as well--and the grave difficulty the 19th-century thinkers pose for the academic establishment is that all of those primary thinkers are contrarian and radical.  It isn't possible to overlook or refute them; all that can be done is deform and misrepresent their thinking, blunt it, confuse its purposes and accomplishments.  How geniuses get academicized.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on poverty, education, college, and class

When it is difficult for millions to make even the two ends meet, when millions are dying of starvation, it is monstrous to think of giving our relatives a costly education. Expansion of the mind will come from hard experience, not necessarily in the college or in the schoolroom....  The golden rule to apply in all such cases is resolutely to refuse to have what millions cannot. THis ability to refuse will not descend upon us all of a sudden. The first thing is to cultivate the mental attitude that we will not have possessions or facilities denied to millions, and the next immediate thing is to rearrange our lives as fast as possible in accordance with our mentality.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Guy Kawasaki on teams, revolutionary, ability, passion, macintosh, mac, and college

The two most important things about people on a revolutionary team are their ability and passion. Their educational level or work experience is meaningless--most of the engineers who did ground-breaking work of the Macintosh design didn't even graduate from college.
