Famous quotes containing the words university and/or singh:

    To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labour. You must in some way or other graft upon the man’s nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine.
    William Booth (1829–1912)

    Saint, saintliness is a long way off.
    It is like a tall and beautiful palm tree.
    If you climb it, you drink the love potion,
    but if you fall you break into pieces.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.
