College Life Quotes

The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education, but the means of education.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not ask if a man has been through college; ask if a college has been through him; if he is a walking university.

Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Fathers send their sons to college either because they went to college or they didn't.

L.L. Hendren

The things taught in colleges and schools are not an education, but the means of education.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A college education is not a quantitative body of memorized knowledge salted away in a card file. It is a taste for knowledge, a taste for philosophy, if you will; a capacity to explore, to question to perceive relationships, between fields of knowledge and experience.

A. Whitney Griswold

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle... (or) Einstein's Theory of Relativity ... (or) the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Martin Luther King Jr

His complexion exceeding faire he was so faire that they called him the Lady of Christ's College.

John Aubrey

Lewis Niles Black

And I love it when your hair still wet cause you just took a shower. Runnin on a treadmill and only eating salad. Sound so smart like you graduated college, like you went to Yale but you probably went to Howard.

Drake

It is amazing how many undergraduates are poking around for courses to take, without any plan or question to ask, just filling up their college years. In fact, with rare exceptions, the courses are parts of specialties and not designed for general cultivation, or to investigate questions important for human beings as such. The so-called knowledge explosion and increasing specialization have not filled up the college years but emptied them. Those years are impediments; one wants to get beyond them. And in general the persons one finds in the professions need not have gone to college, if one is to judge by their tastes, their fund of learning or their interests.

Allan David Bloom

They tend to call me a college cat. I ball hard and Toronto please acknowldge that.

Drake

A man is a better citizen of the United States for being also a loyal citizen of his state, and of his city; for being loyal to his family, and to his profession or trade; for being loyal to his college or his lodge. . . . For only through the ennobling effect of its strivings can we develop the best that is in us and give to this country the full benefit of our great inheritance.
