"We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate. The broad education will, therefore, transmit to one not only the accumulated knowledge of the race but also the accumulated experience of social living."

- excerpt from "The Purpose of Education," written by Dr. King  in the February 1947 edition of the  Morehouse College  student newspaper, the Maroon Tiger.
