Famous quotes containing the words shut and/or intermediate:

    We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
