"Learning a foreign language not only reveals how other societies think and feel, what they have experienced and value, and how they express themselves, it also provides a cultural mirror in which we can more clearly see out our own society."

Chancellor Edward Lee Gorsuch, chancellor of the University of Alaska, Anchorage

(retired in 1994), member of the Arctic Research Commission

"One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." Frank Smith
