Charles Eliot's Harvard Classics (now at archive.org), 5-foot shelf of books and a shelf of fiction. 15-minutes per day for a year to a liberal education. In Fifteen Minutes a Day, The Reading Guide, Dr. Elliot is quoted as saying "...I had more than once stated in public that in my opinion a five-foot -- at first a three-foot -- shelf would hold books enough to afford a good substitute for a liberal education to anyone who would read them with devotion, even if he could spare but fifteen minutes a day for reading."

Quote of the moment
No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bias his judgment, and, not improbably, corrupt his integrity. With equal, nay with greater reason, a body of men are unfit to be both judges and parties at the same time; yet what are many of the most important acts of legislation, but so many judicial determinations, not indeed concerning the rights of single persons, but concerning the rights of large bodies of citizens? And what are the different classes of legislators but advocates and parties to the causes which they determine?
~ Federalist, no. 10 (James Madison) ~
