English Scholars

Famous quotes containing the words english and/or scholars:

    The boneless quality of English conversation, which, so far as I have heard it, is all form and no content. Listening to Britons dining out is like watching people play first-class tennis with imaginary balls.
    Margaret Halsey (b. 1910)

    Much reading is an oppression of the mind, and extinguishes the natural candle, which is the reason of so many senseless scholars in the world.
    William Penn (1644–1718)
