Scholarship Quotes

All of your scholarship, all your study of Shakespeare and Wordsworth would be vain if at the same time you did not build your character and attain mastery over your thoughts and your actions

Mahatma Gandhi

Scholarship except by accident is never the measure of a person's power.

Josiah Gilbert Holland

My own ideals for the university are those of a genuine democracy and serious scholarship. These two, indeed, seem to go together.

Woodrow Wilson

Genitals are a great distraction to scholarship.

Sir Malcolm Stanley Bradbury

True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment.

James Russell Lowell

However great an intellectual may be, however great one may be as a scholar or a man of learning, one has also to acquire humanness. Without humanness, scholarship and intellectual eminence are of no value

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

You may have a vast scholarship, fame or fortune. But, the bee can give you a lesson on how to be free from torment

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning while those other subjects merely require scholarship.

Robert A. Heinlein

The ceaseless, senseless demand for original scholarship in a number of fields, where only erudition is now possible, has led either to sheer irrelevancy, the famous knowing of more and more about less and less, or to the development of a pseudo-scholarship which actually destroys its object.

Hannah Arendt

Scholarship has yielded to the irresistible pull that science exerts on our minds by its self-confidence and the promise of certified knowledge. But, to repeat, the objects of culture are not analyzable, not graspable by the geometric mind. Great works of art are great by virtue of being syntheses of the world; they qualify as art by fusing form and contents into an indivisible whole; what they offer is not "discourse about," nor a cipher to be decoded, but a prolonged incitement to finesse. So it is paradoxical that our way of introducing young minds to such works should be the way of scholarship.

Jacques Barzun
