Famous quotes containing the word study:

    Men sometimes speak as if the study of the classics would at length make way for more modern and practical studies; but the adventurous student will always study classics, in whatever language they may be written and however ancient they may be. For what are the classics but the noblest recorded thoughts of man?... We might as well omit to study Nature because she is old.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Whenever, at a party, I have been in the mood to study fools, I have always looked for a great beauty: they always gather round her like flies around a fruit stall.
    Jean Paul Richter (1763–1825)

    Most married couples spend the whole day apart, the woman in the house, the man in the office or study or workshop.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
