Famous quotes containing the word erasmus:

    It’s the generally accepted privilege of theologians to stretch the heavens, that is the Scriptures, like tanners with a hide.
    —Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    Human affairs are so obscure and various that nothing can be clearly known. This was the sound conclusion of the Academic sceptics, who were the least surly of philosophers.
    —Desiderius Erasmus (1469–1536)

    Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place.
    —Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
