Famous quotes containing the words professors and/or notable:
“Dilettantes appreciate the work, professors the master at the same time.”
—Franz Grillparzer (17911872)
“Every notable advance in technique or organization has to be paid for, and in most cases the debit is more or less equivalent to the credit. Except of course when its more than equivalent, as it has been with universal education, for example, or wireless, or these damned aeroplanes. In which case, of course, your progress is a step backwards and downwards.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
