"How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid?
It must be education that does it."
Alexandre Dumas, Fils
"It takes most men five years to recover from a college education and
to learn that poetry is as vital to thinking as knowledge."
"Note too that a faithful study of the liberal arts humanizes
character and permits it not to be cruel."
Ovid (Ex Ponto, II)
"Academic and aristocratic people live in such an uncommon atmosphere
that common sense can rarely reach them."
"The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a
suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life.
For this task it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its
spot and takes root it doesn't need its brain any more so it eats it.
It's rather like getting tenure."
"Give me chastity and continence, but not just now."
- St. Augustine (354-430)
