Famous quotes containing the words system, university and/or texas:
“Human beings are compelled to live within a lie, but they can be compelled to do so only because they are in fact capable of living in this way. Therefore not only does the system alienate humanity, but at the same time alienated humanity supports this system as its own involuntary masterplan, as a degenerate image of its own degeneration, as a record of peoples own failure as individuals.”
—Václav Havel (b. 1936)
“In the United States, it is now possible for a person eighteen years of age, female as well as male, to graduate from high school, college, or university without ever having cared for, or even held, a baby; without ever having comforted or assisted another human being who really needed help. . . . No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings.”
—Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word. And theres an opening convey of generalities. A Texan outside of Texas is a foreigner.”
—John Steinbeck (19021968)
