“The passion for seeking the truth for truth's sake...can be kept alive only if we continue to seek the truth for truth's sake.”
Franz Boas, Race And Democratic Society

“It would seem that mythological worlds have been built up only to be shattered again, and that new worlds were built from the fragments.”
Franz Boas

“I believe the present state of our knowledge justifies us in saying that, while individuals differ, biological differences are small. There is no reason to believe that one race is by nature so much more intelligent, endowed with great will power, or emotionally more stable than another that the difference would materially influence its culture.”
Franz Boas, Race, Language, and Culture
