"We must think in terms of the next 100 years. We must think in terms of this university becoming the greatest university in Canada, and with that greatness will continue beauty. And in the years to come this university, like the great universities of Britain and the United States, will continue to resist the expedient, will deny the passing fancies of political pressures and as technological, social, scientific, economic, and political changes take place it will be found to be giving a constancy of leadership in those things which are of real and of lasting value as well as in the search for new knowledge. We must learn that we may teach, we must be the repository of what is known that we may search for the unknown."
