: "Each for each is what we teach" What is the source and meaning of this phrase?

My search for the source was useless, even though I dragged myself through one of the blogs on MySpace in a self-sacrificial effort to be thorough. If I'm not mistaken, the meaning is roughly the same as the motto of the Three Musketeers--All for one and one for all.

"Is what we teach." I've been looking for the source of the well-known chant,"Rooty-toot, rooty-toot,/ We're the boys from the Institute,/ We don't drink and we don't smoke/ And we don't tell a dirty joke." A little collegiate humor, you might say. Sophomoric at best.
