Famous quotes containing the words scholar and/or books:

    A scholar would be willing to die for one who recognizes his talents, just as a woman will beautify herself for the one who loves her.
    Chinese proverb.

    I am an inveterate homemaker, it is at once my pleasure, my recreation, and my handicap. Were I a man, my books would have been written in leisure, protected by a wife and a secretary and various household officials. As it is, being a woman, my work has had to be done between bouts of homemaking.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)
