A Quote by Charles Seymour on college, education, emotion, goodwill, idealism, sacrifice, self-sacrifice, sympathy, and wisdom

Consideration is not merely a matter of emotional goodwill but of intellectual vigor and moral self sacrifice. Wisdom must combine with sympathy. That is why consideration underlies the phrase "a scholar and a gentleman," which really sums up the ideal of the output of a college education.

A Quote by Charles Malcolm Douglas, D.D. on action, goodwill, heroism, honor, impulses, mankind, and men

The touch of the heroic awakens in us the slumbering hero. Fellowship with a true servant of mankind calls into action our latent impulses to minister.
