ROGER ASCHAM
English classical scholar and writer
(1515 - 1568)

A man, groundly learned already, may take much profit himself in using by epitome to draw other men's works, for his own memory sake, into short room.
      - [Quotations]

He hazardeth much who depends for his learning on experience. An unhappy master, he that is only made wise by many shipwrecks; a miserable merchant, that is neither rich nor wise till he has been bankrupt. By experience we find out a short way by a long wandering.
      - [Experience]

It is a pity that, commonly, more care is had--yea, and that among very wise men--to find out rather a cunning man for their horse than a cunning man for their children.
      - [Teaching]

It is good manners, not rank, wealth, or beauty, that constitute the real lay.
      - [Ladies]

Learning teacheth more in one year than experience in twenty.
      - [Learning]

To be rash is to be bold without shame and without skill.
      - [Rashness]

Twenty to one offend more in writing too much than too little.
      - [Authorship]

To speak as the common people do, to think as wise men do.
      - Dedication to All the Gentlemen and Yeomen of England
        [Wisdom]

By experience we find out a shorter way by a long wandering. Learning teacheth more in one year than experience in twenty.
      - Schoolmaster [Experience]

It is costly wisdom that is bought by experience.
      - Schoolmaster [Experience]

To laugh, to lie, to flatter to face,
  Foure waies in court to win men's grace.
      - Schoolmaster [Courtiers]
