Carolina Quotables

"What we learned at Chapel Hill was not chemistry and economics and mathematics. Those were the instruments of learning. We learned, we absorbed, with Frank Porter Graham as our master teacher, that solid tradition, those hopes of this university born of the beginnings of a new nation, values this great university continues to nourish -- freedom and liberty and tolerance, the search for truth, the defense of dignity, courage to arrive freely at convictions, and the personal courage to stand for those hopes and truths."

-- Terry Sanford, Governor and U.S. Senator, in his University Day Address, October 12, 1987
