Famous quotes containing the words limerick, griffith and/or college:
“The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical,
But the good ones Ive seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.”
—Charles Griffith (b. 1930)
“The logical English train a scholar as they train an engineer. Oxford is Greek factory, as Wilton mills weave carpet, and Sheffield grinds steel. They know the use of a tutor, as they know the use of a horse; and they draw the greatest amount of benefit from both. The reading men are kept by hard walking, hard riding, and measured eating and drinking, at the top of their condition, and two days before the examination, do not work but lounge, ride, or run, to be fresh on the college doomsday.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
