"It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks."

Albert Einstein to Thomas Edison, 1921. Quoted in Philipp Frank, Einstein: His Life and Times, 1947,185.
