    Randall Balmer, Religion in American Culture:
    "If you’ll allow me a personal note. Today marks the end of my first 25 years of teaching at Columbia. And I want to thank you for that, and I mean that. On my first day of teaching, I showed up to class and there was no one there and it was devastating, right out of grad school. And so I thank you for that. Without you, I’d probably be stuck teaching Introduction to Comparative Religion or something stupid like that."

    From Musatti in principles "If i were a man they'd say, 'oh he has balls!'"

  18. balmer  

    is amazing in so many ways.

  19. Best Conclusion: No Competition

    Professor Connor, in his translation studies class, started out saying that "Conclusions are stupid." and then proceeded to quote some French guy about how "Stupidity consists in wanting to conclude."

    On a side note, Intro to Translation Studies (which won't be offered again until next fall) is one hell of an awesome course.
