Scholar

Famous quotes containing the word scholar:

    It has been the acknowledged right of every Marxist scholar to read into Marx the particular meaning that he himself prefers and to treat all others with indignation.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    The scholar is not apt to make his most familiar experience come gracefully to the aid of his expression.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is now many years that men have resorted to the forest for fuel and the materials of the arts: the New Englander and the New Hollander, the Parisian and the Celt, the farmer and Robin Hood, Goody Blake and Harry Gill; in most parts of the world, the prince and the peasant, the scholar and the savage, equally require still a few sticks from the forest to warm them and cook their food. Neither could I do without them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
