Our royal master saw with heedful eyes
  The state of his two universities;
    To one he sends a regiment, for why?
      That learned body wanted loyalty.
        To the other books he gave, as well discerning,
          How much that loyal body wanted learning.
      - attributed to Thomas Warton, the Younger,
        on George I's donation to Cambridge University

      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Have you learned lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you?
  Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed the passage with you?
      - Walt Whitman

He most honors my style who learns under it to destroy the teacher.
      - Walt Whitman

One of the many lessons that one learns in prison is, that things are what they are and will be what they will be.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Learning makes a man fit company for himself.
      - Edward Young

Your learning, like the lunar beam, affords
  Light, but not heat; it leaves you undevout,
    Frozen at heart, while speculation shines.
      - Edward Young

Much learning shows how little mortals know:
  Much wealth, how little worldlings can enjoy.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VI, l. 519)

Were man to live coeval with the sun,
  The patriarch-pupil would be learning still.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VII, l. 86)
