Famous quotes containing the words college and/or structure:
“A whale-ship was my Yale College and my Harvard.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Man is more disposed to domination than freedom; and a structure of dominion not only gladdens the eye of the master who rears and protects it, but even its servants are uplifted by the thought that they are members of a whole, which rises high above the life and strength of single generations.”
—Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (17671835)
