Really good quotes are never old:

John F. Kennedy

"..Finance theory is a jewel in the crown of economics.....No sector of economics so nicely connects up elegance of analysis with empirical verification of market behavior as does modern finance theory"
Paul Samuelson

My teaching philosophy
"You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself."
- Galileo Galilei

My research philosophy

-John Kenneth Galbraith
