I must study politics and war that my sons may have the liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.

My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, navel architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture....

in order to give their children the right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.

The next generation will stand on your shoulders. They will either be straight or fall off.

That's a good quotation.
