”Creative leadership and liberal education, which in fact go together, are the first requirements for a hopeful future for humankind. It [Fulbright] is a modest program with an immodest aim — the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilized, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past. “ - by J. William Fulbright
