L. Ron Hubbard

"I have lived no cloistered life and hold in contempt the wise man who has not lived and the scholar who will not share. There have been many wiser men than I, but few have traveled as much road.

"I have seen life from the top down and the bottom up. I know how it looks both ways. And I know there is wisdom and that there is hope."

- L. Ron Hubbard
