Daniel J. Evans
The college graduate is presented with a sheepskin to cover his intellectual nakedness.
Robert M. Hutchins

Yale places great stress on undergraduate and graduate teaching. I like teaching, and I do a lot of it.
You must realize that honorary degrees are given generally to people whose SAT scores were too low to get them into schools the regular way. As a matter of fact, it was my SAT scores that led me into my present vocation in life, comedy.
I was really desperate. I don't know if you can remember back that far, but when I went to graduate school they didn't want females in graduate school. They were very open about it. They didn't mince their words. But then I got in and I got my degree.
