Famous quotes containing the words oxford and/or earl:

    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 (1803–1882)

    But oh, how slowly minutes roll
    When absent from her eyes,
    That feed my love, which is my soul:
    It languishes and dies.
    John Wilmot, 2d Earl Of Rochester (1647–1680)
