"Great minds are to make others great. Their superiority is to be used not to break the multitude to intellectual vassalage, not to establish over them a spiritual tyranny, but to rouse them from lethargy, and to aid them to judge for themselves. Everything here but the soul of man is a passing shadow. The only enduring substance is within." William Ellery Channing
