Famous quotes containing the words design, art and/or college:

    For I choose that my remembrances of him should be pleasing, affecting, religious. I will love him as a glorified friend, after the free way of friendship, and not pay him a stiff sign of respect, as men do to those whom they fear. A passage read from his discourses, a moving provocation to works like his, any act or meeting which tends to awaken a pure thought, a flow of love, an original design of virtue, I call a worthy, a true commemoration.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is an art apart. Saint Francis of Assisi said—”All saints can do miracles, but few of them can keep hotel.”
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    No girl who is going to marry need bother to win a college degree; she just naturally becomes a “Master of Arts” and a “Doctor of Philosophy” after catering to an ordinary man for a few years.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)
