Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or academic:

    Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
    His hearth the earth,—his hall the azure dome;
    Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road,
    By God’s own light illumined and foreshadowed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If twins are believed to be less intelligent as a class than single-born children, it is not surprising that many times they are also seen as ripe for social and academic problems in school. No one knows the extent to which these kind of attitudes affect the behavior of multiples in school, and virtually nothing is known from a research point of view about social behavior of twins over the age of six or seven, because this hasn’t been studied either.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)
