„All educated Americans, first or last, go to Europe“

—  Ralph Waldo Emerson American philosopher, essayist, and poet 1803 - 1882
1860s, The Conduct of Life (1860), Context: I have been quoted as saying captious things about travel; but I mean to do justice. I think, there is a restlessness in our people, which argues want of character. All educated Americans, first or last, go to Europe; — perhaps, because it is their mental home, as the invalid habits of this country might suggest. An eminent teacher of girls said, "the idea of a girl's education, is, whatever qualifies them for going to Europe." Can we never extract this tape-worm of Europe from the brain of our countrymen?

„Perhaps the most fundamental value of a liberal education is that it makes life more interesting.“

—  Kingman Brewster, Jr. American diplomat 1919 - 1988
Context: Perhaps the most fundamental value of a liberal education is that it makes life more interesting. It allows you to think things which do not occur to the less learned... it makes it less likely that you will be bored with life. As quoted in "Kingman Brewster Jr., 69, Ex-Yale President and U.S. Envoy, Dies" in The New York Times (9 November 1988) http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=940DE5D6143CF93AA35752C1A96E948260&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=print
