Famous quotes containing the word scholar:

    The learner always begins by finding fault, but the scholar sees the positive merit in everything.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    In this distribution of functions, the scholar is the delegated intellect. In the right state, he is, Man Thinking. In the degenerate state, when the victim of society, he tends to become a mere thinker, or, still worse, the parrot of other men’s thinking.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A scholar does not wish to be always pumping his brains; he wants gossips.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
