“It’s been quite a ride. I loved every minute of it.”

Rest in peace, Charlton Heston.
October 4, 1924 – April 5, 2008

This quote is from a speech given to the Harvard Law School Forum February 16, 1999.

“You are the best and the brightest. You, here in the fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River, you are the cream. But I submit that you, and your counterparts across the land, are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that … and abide it … you are – by your grandfathers’ standards – cowards.”

It doesn’t take but a few minutes, and it should challenge you.
