Famous quotes containing the word study:

    I have not made a study of it, but believe that it is a minor point in the history of the war.
    Jean-Marie Le Pen (b. 1928)

    Because just as arms have no force outside if there is no counsel within a house, study is vain and counsel useless that is not put to virtuous effect when the time calls.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    Why should I seek for love or study it?
    It is of God and passes human wit;
    I study hatred with great diligence,
    For that’s a passion in my own control,
    A sort of besom that can clear the soul
    Of everything that is not mind or sense.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
