#4933I think your opinions are reasonable, except for the one about my mental
-- Psychology Professor, Farifield University
#4934"I'm returning this note to you, instead of your paper, because it (your paper)
presently occupies the bottom of my bird cage."
-- English Professor, Providence College
#4935If any man wishes to be humbled and mortified, let him become president
of Harvard.
-- Edward Holyoke
#4936If he had only learnt a little less, how infinitely better he might have
taught much more!
#4937If ignorance is bliss, why aren't there more happy people?
#4938If little else, the brain is an educational toy.
-- Tom Robbins
#4939If someone had told me I would be Pope one day, I would have studied harder.
-- Pope John Paul I
#4940If the colleges were better, if they really had it, you would need to get
the police at the gates to keep order in the inrushing multitude. See in
college how we thwart the natural love of learning by leaving the natural
method of teaching what each wishes to learn, and insisting that you shall
learn what you have no taste or capacity for. The college, which should
be a place of delightful labor, is made odious and unhealthy, and the
young men are tempted to frivolous amusements to rally their jaded spirits.
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not
by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise
instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the
attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools,
not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to
put on a professor.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
#4941If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?
-- Lily Tomlin
#4942If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world.
-- Wittgenstein
