Famous quotes containing the word scholar:

    Take a decayed Christian ... and the remains of a Stoic; mix thoroughly with good manners, a bit of money and an old-fashioned education; simmer for several years in a university. Result: a scholar and a gentleman. Well, there were worse types of human being.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    A scholar is a candle which the love and desire of all men will light.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The scholar is that man who must take up into himself all the ability of the time, all the contributions of the past, all the hopes of the future. He must be an university of knowledges.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
