SCHOLARSHIP
[ Also see Learning Scholars Schools ]

Scholars are men of peace; they bear no arms, but their tongues are sharper than Actius's sword, their pens carry farther, and give a louder report than thunder. I had rather stand in the shock of a basilisk than in the fury of a merciless pen.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

In the true literary man there is thus ever, acknowledged or not by the world, a sacredness; he is the light of the world; the world's priest--guiding it, like a sacred pillar of fire, in its dark pilgrimage through the waste of time.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The resources of the scholar are proportioned to his confidence in the attributes of the intellect.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Scholarship, save by accident, is never the measure of a man's power.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

To talk in public, to think in solitude, to read and to hear, to inquire and answer inquiries, is the business of the scholar.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

A great scholar, in the highest sense of the term, is not one who depends simply on an infinite memory, but also on an infinite and electrical power of combination; bringing together from the four winds, like the Angel of the Resurrection, what else were dust from dead men's bones, into the unity of breathing life.
      - Thomas De Quincey ("The Opium Eater")

A scholar has no ennui.
  [Ger., Ein Gelehrter hat keine Langweile.]
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul),
        Hesperus (8)
