I am an old scholar, better-looking now than when I was young. That's what sitting on your ass does to your face.

Leonard Cohen

A great scholar is seldom a great philosopher.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

And let a scholar all earth's volumes carry, he will be but a walking dictionary: a mere articulate clock.

George Chapman

A scholar is like a book written in a dead language. It is not every one that can read in it.

William Hazlitt

The success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly a courtier-like success, not kingly, not manly.

Henry David Thoreau

He was a rake among scholars, and a scholar among rakes.

Thomas Babington Macaulay

I'm a good scholar when it comes to reading but a blotting kind of writer when you give me a pen.

There is no gardening without humility. Nature is constantly sending even its oldest scholars to the bottom of the class for some egregious blunder.

A reading machine, always wound up and going, he mastered whatever was not worth the knowing.

Carter G. Woodson

Some scholars have been arguing that a civilizational clash between organized religions is the next step in human history.

Mary Douglas

Harvard is first and foremost a university and not a consulting operation, and our job here is to teach and to research and to create knowledge on Asia in conjunction and in cooperation with scholars as well as with political, intellectual, and cultural leaders in Asia.

The scholars and poets of an earlier time can be read only with a dictionary to help.

Carl Sandburg

One of the biggest things I understood in a program like that was that it allowed more young African American scholars to do field research in the Caribbean and in Africa than had ever happened before in the history of the country and since.

Bernice Johnson Reagon

In the same way that we need statesmen to spare us the abjection of exercising power, we need scholars to spare us the abjection of learning.

Jean Baudrillard

The professors laugh at themselves, they laugh at life; they long ago abjured the bitch-goddess Success, and the best of them will fight for his scholastic ideals with a courage and persistence that would shame a soldier. The professor is not afraid of words like truth; in fact he is not afraid of words at all.

Catherine Drinker Bowen

No account of the Renaissance can be complete without some notice of the attempt made by certain Italian scholars of the fifteenth century to reconcile Christianity with the religion of ancient Greece.

Walter Pater

The office of the scholar is to cheer, to raise, and to guide men by showing them facts amidst appearances. He plies the slow, unhonored, and unpaid task of observation. He is the world's eye.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

He has the common feeling of his profession. He enjoys a statement twice as much if it appears in fine print, and anything that turns up in a footnote... takes on the character of divine revelation.

Margaret Halsey

Scholarship except by accident is never the measure of a person's power.

Josiah Gilbert Holland

There mark what ills the scholar's life assail, toil, envy, want, and patron.

Samuel Johnson

One cannot demand of a scholar that he show himself a scholar everywhere in society, but the whole tenor of his behavior must none the less betray the thinker, he must always be instructive, his way of judging a thing must even in the smallest matters be such that people can see what it will amount to when, quietly and self-collected, he puts this power to scholarly use.

G. C. (Georg Christoph) Lichtenberg

People often become scholars for the same reason they become soldiers: simply because they are unfit for any other station. Their right hand has to earn them a livelihood; one might say they lie down like bears in winter and seek sustenance from their paws.

G. C. (Georg Christoph) Lichtenberg

Gloom and solemnity are entirely out of place in even the most rigorous study of an art originally intended to make glad the heart of man.

Ezra Pound

I lived in a region in the northwestern province - the people there in general have a great love for the Taliban, so I started to read some of the literature of the scholars and the history of the movement. And my heart became attached to them.

John Walker Lindh

It is the job of thinking people not to be on the side of the executioners.

Albert Camus

Academia is the death of cinema. It is the very opposite of passion. Film is not the art of scholars, but of illiterates.

Werner Herzog

It's a very good thing for students also to be exposed to people who aren't film students or film scholars but who work in the world of film.

Ferdinand De Saussure

I begin by taking. I shall find scholars later to demonstrate my perfect right.

Frederick II

An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. Can they be brought together? This is a practical question. We must get down to it. I despise intelligence really means: I cannot bear my doubts.

Albert Camus

When nature exceeds culture, we have the rustic. When culture exceeds nature then we the pedant.


I cannot forgive a scholar his homeless despondency.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

America has a strategic interest in continuing to welcome international students at our colleges, universities, and high schools. Attracting the world's top scientific scholars helps to keep our economy competitive.

Norm Coleman

I served the famous professors and scholars, and eventually they learned that the Reverend Moon is superior to them. Even Nobel laureate academics who thought they were at the center of knowledge are as nothing in front of me.

Sun Myung Moon

My opinions about human nature are shared by many psychologists, linguists, and biologists, not to mention philosophers and scholars going back centuries.
