Elevator Wisdom

I caught the Hesburgh Library elevator this afternoon, and just as the doors opened Father Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C. joined us. For ten floors, I got to listen to him chat to others in the elevator about various subjects, including an undergraduate who is majoring in PLS – Program of Liberal Studies.

Father Ted’s comment:

“That’s the best program we have. You can’t study the writings of fifty of the most intelligent people in history and not learn something good.”
