Famous quotes containing the words fund and/or scholarship:

    School success is not predicted by a child’s fund of facts or a precocious ability to read as much as by emotional and social measures; being self-assured and interested: knowing what kind of behavior is expected and how to rein in the impulse to misbehave; being able to wait, to follow directions, and to turn to teachers for help; and expressing needs while getting along with other children.
    Daniel Goleman (20th century)

    Men have a respect for scholarship and learning greatly out of proportion to the use they commonly serve.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
