Famous quotes containing the words college and/or bennett:

    The mode of founding a college is, commonly, to get up a subscription of dollars and cents, and then, following blindly the principles of a division of labor to its extreme,—a principle which should never be followed but with circumspection,—to call in a contractor who makes this a subject of speculation,... and for these oversights successive generations have to pay.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    He said “Next time can I bring my friend?”
    And I thought “Does he mean friend?”
    And I thought “Yes he does mean friend.”
    Which was quite bold in those days.
    It was the Dark Ages. Men and men.
    And they could still put you in prison for it.
    And did, dear.
    —Alan Bennett (b. 1934)
