Clark Kerr Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Clark Kerr from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The status quo is the only solution that cannot be vetoed.
- Clark Kerr

A university anywhere can aim no higher than to be
as British as possible for the sake of the undergraduates,

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
