Famous quotes containing the words university and/or state:

    The most important function of the university in an age of reason is to protect reason from itself.
    Allan Bloom (1930–1992)

    We are living in a demented world. And we know it. It would not come as a surprise to anyone if tomorrow the madness gave way to a frenzy which would leave our poor Europe in a state of distracted stupor, with engines still turning and flags streaming in the breeze, but with the spirit gone.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
