"A nation can only be free, happy and great in proportion to the virtue and intelligence of the people." This Stephen F. Austin quote can be found on the ceiling in the Hall of Noble Words, a portion of the Life Science Library on the second floor of the Main Building. Famed classics professor and UT administrator William Battle worked with the faculty to choose the quote and 43 others to adorn the library’s ceiling beams. Perfect study-break inspiration.
