John Hibben, president of Princeton University, 1913 graduation address

You, enlightened, self-sufficient, self-governed, endowed with gifts above your fellows, the world expects you to produce as well as to consume, to add to and not to subtract from its store of good, to build up and not to tear down, to ennoble and not degrade.
The time is short, the opportunity is great; therefore, crowd the hours with the best that is in you.

- John Hibben, president of Princeton University, 1913 graduation address
