"The qualities of mind...that I seek to emulate: the willingness to question anything, and anybody, on any subject anytime; the categorical refusal to accept anything as sacred; the genuine openness to all ideas; and, finally, the basic conviction that most ideas peddled about are nonsense or worse when examined critically."
- James M. Buchanan (Economics from the Outside In)
"May we continue to have our differences, for scholarship would be a dull affair without them, but may we continue to have them with respect, affection, and the true spirit of scholarship."

"The field of science, indeed the whole world of human society, is a cooperative one. At each moment we are competing, whether for academic honors or business success.

-Kenneth Arrow (1986)
"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties."
