Famous quotes containing the word learning:

    Go, throng each other’s drawing-rooms,
    Ye idols of a petty clique:
    Strut your brief hour in borrowed plumes,
    And make your penny-trumpets squeak:
    Deck your dull talk with pilfered shreds
    Of learning from a noble time,
    And oil each other’s little heads
    With mutual Flattery’s golden slime.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
