"I have a personal philosophy in life: If somebody else can do something that I'm doing, they should do it. And what I want to do is find things that would represent a unique contribution to the world - the contribution that only I, and my portfolio of talents, can make happen. Those are my priorities in life." - Neil deGrasse Tyson
"Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes." - Otto von Bismarck
"Works of art often last forever, or nearly so. But exhibitions themselves, especially gallery exhibitions, are like flowers; they bloom and then they die, then exist only as memories, or pressed in magazines and books." - Jerry Saltz
"Academic success depends on research and publications." - Philip Zombardo
"The people must know before they can act, and there is no educator to compare with the press." - Ida B. Wells
