Two New York Times writers, David Brooks and Gail Collins, discussed what is really important in life. David said "The most important decision any of us make is who we marry. ... The most important talent any person can possess is the ability to make and keep friends. ... The most important skill a person can possess is the ability to control one’s impulses." Gail said "Judging people by the college they went to is almost as bad as judging them by their family tree. It’s the dictatorship of the U.S. News & World Report ranking list."
