Quotation of the Week 20

I have been wondering about the future of education in this country for some time. So, I decided to gather together a few quotes that will help me understand it better. Here they go:

“(On Cambridge University…) This place is the Devil, or at least his principle residence, they call it the University, but any other appellation would have suited it much better, for study is the last pursuit of the society; the Master eats, drinks and sleeps, the Fellows drink, dispute, and pun, the employments of the undergraduates you will probably conjecture without my description.”

Lord Byron, Letter 23 November 1805
