Pupils

Famous quotes containing the word pupils:

    If a teacher have any opinion which he wishes to conceal, his pupils will become as fully indoctrinated into that as into any which he publishes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Close to the academy in this town they have erected a sort of gallows for the pupils to practice on. I thought that they might as well hang at once all who need to go through such exercises in so new a country, where there is nothing to hinder their living an outdoor life. Better omit Blair, and take the air.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Master and Doctor are my titles;
    For ten years now, without repose,
    I’ve held my erudite recitals
    And led my pupils by the nose.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
