    The necessity of labor and conversation with many men and things to the scholar is rarely well remembered.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The humblest painter is a true scholar; and the best of scholars—the scholar of nature.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
