"I think that once you've found a person you are very fond of...I mean a person who is fond of you, too, and likes you enough to be interested in your character...Well I think that's just as important as college is, and even more so. That's what I think."
I never understood this quote from George. However after examining the quote a few times I understand what it means. Hes saying that if someone likes you so much. Also if she or he likes your character then thats pretty important. He compared that to college saying he would give up college just for that. He was going to go to college to be a good farmer. You dont need to go to college to be a farmer. Just read some books..
