Erasmus School

Famous quotes containing the words erasmus and/or school:

    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)

    And this school wasn’t keeping anymore,
    Unless for penitents who took their seat
    Upon its doorsteps as at mercy’s feet
    To make up for a lack of meditation.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
