Madison Sarratt — Today I’m giving two examinations…

Today I’m giving two examinations. One in trigonometry and the other in honesty. I hope you will pass them both. If you must fail one, fail trigonometry. There are many good people in the world who can’t pass trig, but there are no good people in the world who cannot pass a test of honesty.
What Dr. Madison Sarratt used to tell his class at Vanderbilt University each year.
