“What you and I and God have in common is that we are all human. To be like God, you must be more human. To be more human, you must help others, and give of yourself and your talents. And that means being educated — it is how Jesuit education has formed others for 500 years.
“What you hold onto, you lose. What you give away, you never lose. The reason to be educated is to teach someone else. You never grasp the fruits of your education until you give it away.
“The measure of the success of your education at Boston College is the measure to which people who never got to come to Boston College’s…lives are richer, fuller, more genuinely human because YOU did go to Boston College.” -Fr. Michael Himes
