Famous quotes containing the words doctor of, science and/or doctor:

    You are not a doctor of dentistry! You are a doctor of segregation!
    Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)

    He is not a true man of science who does not bring some sympathy to his studies, and expect to learn something by behavior as well as by application. It is childish to rest in the discovery of mere coincidences, or of partial and extraneous laws. The study of geometry is a petty and idle exercise of the mind, if it is applied to no larger system than the starry one.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The doctor will take you now. He is burly and clean;
    Listening, like lover or worshiper, bends at your heart.
    Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989)
