John Grogan, An Interview with John Grogan, 2008
You donít have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You donít have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You donít have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You donít have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.
But thatís all.

Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column #72
When I was in college, I remember fearing that the dreary grind of adulthood would feature infinitely more existential dread than frat parties had, but the opposite has been true for me. I'm much less likely to feel that gnawing fear of aimlessness and nihilism than I used to be and that's partly because education gave me job opportunities, but it's mostly because education gave me perspective and context.

John Green, Vlogbrothers, Is College Worth It?, 08-21-12
Good company requires only birth, education, and manners, and with regard to education is not very nice. Birth and good manners are essential; but a little learning is by no means a dangerous thing in good company; on the contrary, it will do very well.
