One of my most popular posts during my two years here was Fall term in quotes, an unashamedly brief insight into some one-liners from my professors that ranged from insightful to cryptic, absurd to amusing, and thought-provoking to indecipherable in isolation. Here are quotes from the outstanding faculty I've had the pleasure of learning from during Winter and Spring terms this year. Enjoy...
