Famous quotes containing the words degree and/or academic:

    The state does not demand justice of its members, but thinks that it succeeds very well with the least degree of it, hardly more than rogues practice; and so do the neighborhood and the family. What is commonly called Friendship even is only a little more honor among rogues.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An academic dialect is perfected when its terms are hard to understand and refer only to one another.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
