Famous quotes containing the word scholar:

    I’m a good scholar when it comes to reading but a blotting kind of writer when you give me a pen.
    —J.M. (John Millington)

    Men should not labor foolishly like brutes, but the brain and the body should always, or as much as possible, work and rest together, and then the work will be of such a kind that when the body is hungry the brain will be hungry also, and the same food will suffice for both; otherwise the food which repairs the waste energy of the overwrought body will oppress the sedentary brain, and the degenerate scholar will come to esteem all food vulgar, and all getting a living drudgery.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A scholar does not wish to be always pumping his brains; he wants gossips.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
