"We are starting this day, for this will be a cathedral, not of bricks and mortar, but of ideas, and with a spire so high, lighted by a beacon so bright that it will be a guide through all the years of their lives to all who study here; and it will be a light that shall shine so clear that others too may see it from afar and know that here at Carleton College is a kind of twentieth century American monastery of sincere scholarly men and women of all faiths and ideas, united by the common bond of the search for truth that it may be shared with others, realizing that at long last all definitions of colleges and education end in the simple concept that it is the truth and only the truth that will make men free." -- from the Inaugural Address of Laurence M. Gould, Carleton College, October 16, 1945.
