Carolina Quotables


Joseph Caldwell“The university early excited expectations which were unfortunately too sanguine and premature to be realized. Though the attainment of knowledge may be rendered comparatively easy, it is chimerical to propose that it shall be universally, or totally, without expense.”


-- Joseph Caldwell, Presiding Professor and President of the University of North Carolina, 1803.
