Famous quotes containing the words letters, science, academy and/or finnish:

    If your letters are as long as the bible, they will appear short to me. Only let them be brim full of affection.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Science is a system of statements based on direct experience, and controlled by experimental verification. Verification in science is not, however, of single statements but of the entire system or a sub-system of such statements.
    Rudolf Carnap (1891–1970)

    I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike—and I don’t think there really is a distinction between the two—are always dominated by fools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be liked.
    Harold Bloom (b. 1930)

    A conversation in English in Finnish and in French can not be held at the same time nor with indifference ever or after a time.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
