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

    The entire merit of a man can never be made known; nor the sum of his demerits, if he have them. We are only known by our names; as letters sealed up, we but read each other’s superscriptions.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    If you have science and art,
    You also have religion;
    But if you don’t have them,
    You better have religion.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    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)
