What is field of study?

Famous quotes containing the words field of, study and/or field:

    I see a girl dragged by the wrists
    Across a dazzling field of snow,
    And there is nothing in me that resists.
    Once it would not be so....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Then, though I prize my friends, I cannot afford to talk with them and study their visions, lest I lose my own. It would indeed give me a certain household joy to quit this lofty seeking, this spiritual astronomy, or search of stars, and come down to warm sympathies with you; but then I know well I shall mourn always the vanishing of my mighty gods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Last night I watched my brothers play,
    The gentle and the reckless one,
    In a field two yards away.
    For half a century they were gone
    Beyond the other side of care
    To be among the peaceful dead.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)
