The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.

--Thomas A. Edison

Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.

--B. F. Skinner

For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal.

--John F. Kennedy
