- I'm a student of contemporary culture. Not only do I like shopping malls, but I love to pick up fundamentalist preachers on the radio. It tells me so much about society and about people — what they're thinking." permalink
The Christian Science Monitor interview (1986) quoted in his Baltimore Sun obituary (30 June 1999)
- There is only one reason to have a public university, and that is to serve the people of the state. That should be the touchstone of everything we do: whether it's in the interest of North Carolina and our citizens. permalink
quoted as "his creed" in his New York Times obituary (11 July 1999)
- What I'm concerned about is the people who don't dwell on the meaninglessness of their lives, or the meaningfulness of it, who just pursue mindless entertainment. permalink
