305 – “And in that year [1928], I think I learned far more than I taught. The greatest lesson was this one. Nothing at all matters more than trained intelligence. It is the key to success in life, but is the key to meaning in life. And that is true for a nation, too. Our greatest national resource probably is not even listed in your textbooks. Our greatest resource is the skill, the vision, and the wisdom of our people.”

–Lyndon Johnson, 36th President of the United States
