    • Kingsfield: Some people believe examinations to be cruel, inhuman and falsely revealing. These relics of a sterner past, they argue, may cause ulcers, drug addiction, and psychosis. I do not go that far. As you may have noticed, I do not subscribe to the permissive school of learning. Some day you may be defending a human life. You must be prepared. The meek may inherit the earth, but they seldom do well in my examinations.

    • Kingsfield: I intend to test minds, Mr. Brooks, not memories.
