personal statement

“Proverbs are always platitudes until you have experienced the truth of them. The newly arrested thief knows that honesty is the best policy with an intensity of conviction which the rest of us can never experience. And to realize that it takes all sorts to make a world one must have seen a certain number of the sorts with one’s own eyes. There is all the difference in the world between believing academically, with the intellect, and believing personally, intimately, with the whole living self.” -Aldous Huxley
