Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by A.E. Housman
#1. I find Cambridge an asylum, in every sense of the word. #Quote by A.E. Housman
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Charles Foster Johnson
#2. We got email today from an LGF reader who was browsing the Lexis research system and discovered that anti-American, anti-capitalist icon Noam Chomsky has embarrassingly capitalist tastes; among other expensive property he owns a 36,155 square foot home near Cambridge, a 13,503 square foot vacation home, and four boats. And we won't even mention the cars. Teaching kids to hate their own country seems to pay quite well. #Quote by Charles Foster Johnson
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Alan Bennett
#3. It [Cambridge] wasn't a holy grail in the sense that I'd never been to Cambridge. But then, when I did go, the contrast between Leeds, which was very black and sooty in those days, and Cambridge, which seemed like something out of a fairystory, in the grip of a hard frost, was just wonderful. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Mike Daisey
#4. It's common to think things will never happen where you are-never in Cambridge, never in New York, never in Seattle-that sort of thing, whatever it is, never happens here, not in our community. Then it happens, right in front of you, and you realize you were blind to it, that you forgot that intolerance and zealotry and viciousness are human currency everywhere, and it takes your breath away. #Quote by Mike Daisey
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Matt Haig
#5. She might not have felt everything she had felt in those lives, but she had the capability. She might have missed those particular opportunities that led her to become an Olympic swimmer, or traveller, or a vineyard owner, or a rock star, or a planet-saving glaciologist, or a Cambridge graduate, or a mother, or million other things, but she was still in in some way all of those people. They were all her. She could of been all those amazing people, and that wasn't depressing, as she had thought. Not at all. It was inspiring. Because now she saw the kinds of things she could do when she put herself to work. #Quote by Matt Haig
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Andre Aciman
#6. He had picked up shrink talk from the women he'd met in Cambridge and understood that once a woman bares her soul there's little else she won't bare ... #Quote by Andre Aciman

Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Zadie Smith
#8. Cambridge was a joy. Tediously. People reading books in a posh place. It was my fantasy. I loved it. I miss it still. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Eric Idle

Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Anne Campbell

Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Barack Obama
#12. The Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home ... What I think we know - separate and apart from this incident - is that there is a long history in their country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact. - President Obama on Gates' arrest. #Quote by Barack Obama
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Richard Dawkins

Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#16. Maybe," he added, his voice almost too casual, "this revelation will lead you to make the sensible decision, and go for me."

"And wouldn't that be a magical thirty-six hours," Kami said. "Before you died of exhaustion."

Rusty did something unspeakable with his eyebrows. "Why, Cambridge, I am scandalized!"

"Shut up!" Kami told him. "You know what I meant. Shut up your entire face. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Douglas Adams
#17. We called ourselves The Reasonably Good Band, but in fact we weren't. Our intention was to be the Beatles of the early eighties, but we got much better financial and legal advice than the Beatles ever did, which was basically 'Don't bother,' so we didn't. I left Cambridge and starved for three years. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Jeremy Narby
#18. Shamanism resembles an academic discipline (such as anthropology or molecular biology); with its practitioners, fundamental researchers, specialists, and schools of thought it is a way of apprehending the world that evolves constantly. One thing is certain: Both indigenous and mestizo shamans consider people like the Shipibo-Conibo, the Tukano, the Kams√°, and the Huitoto as the equivalents to universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, and the Sorbonne; they are the highest reference in matters of knowledge. In this sense, ayahuasca-based shamanism is an essentially indigenous phenomenon. It belongs to the indigenous people of Western Amizonia, who hold the keys to a way of knowing that they have practiced without interruption for at least five thousand years. In comparison, the universities of the Western world are less than nine hundred years old. #Quote by Jeremy Narby
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Susanna Kaysen
#19. Their love story unfolded and then folded up again in Cambridge, as I watched and took mental notes and learned nothing, naturally, because the heart is unteachable. #Quote by Susanna Kaysen
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Richard Ayoade
#20. My parents didn't go to university and weren't brought up in England. They hadn't heard of any other universities other than 'Cambridge' or 'Oxford.' #Quote by Richard Ayoade
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Sheldon Lee Glashow
#21. Would physics at Geneva be as good as physics at Harvard? I think not. Rome? I think not. In Britain, I don't think there is one place, neither Cambridge nor Oxford, which can compare with Harvard. #Quote by Sheldon Lee Glashow
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by William Lawrence Bragg
#22. I feel very strongly indeed that a Cambridge education for our scientists should include some contact with the humanistic side. The gift of expression is important to them as scientists; the best research is wasted when it is extremely difficult to discover what it is all about ... It is even more important when scientists are called upon to play their part in the world of affairs, as is happening to an increasing extent. #Quote by William Lawrence Bragg
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Salman Rushdie
#23. He returned to Cambridge feeling, at the ripe old age of twenty, that life was passing him by. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Sierra Simone
#24. It was too much, too much, even though he'd just started, but I'd never felt this before, never felt what a silky wet mouth could do to silky wet flesh. Never known how the gentle nip of teeth would feel on my clit, the sucking of lips on the same, never guessed what having my hole circled and then fucked with a strong tongue would be like. If I had known - Jesus, if I had known, I would have never turned down those myriad offers of dates and drinks at Cambridge. #Quote by Sierra Simone
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Howard Margolis
#25. Icon Books has a fine series called "Revolutions in Science." These works are succinct, highly readable, and authoritative. The series includes John Henry's Moving Heaven and Earth: Copernicus and the Solar System (Duxford, Cambridge: Icon Books, 2001). Henry's book can be read in an afternoon, and, while not as detailed as Kuhn's classic, it tells the story with verve and lucidity. #Quote by Howard Margolis
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#26. My parents came from Calcutta. They arrived in Cambridge, much like the parents in my novel. And I found myself sort of caught between the world of my parents and the world they had left behind and still clung to, and also the world that surrounded me at school and everywhere else, as soon as I set foot out the door. #Quote by Jhumpa Lahiri
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Sophie Hannah
#27. My favourite Friday treat is to drive out of the centre of Cambridge, where we live, and go for a swim at the health club I've just joined out in the countryside at Quy. It's a lovely pool, inside a converted barn. Usually it's just me and a couple of other swimmers there. #Quote by Sophie Hannah
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#28. The last thing you want to do is turn into a nerd like your father, nose always buried in a book, living like a tramp just to get one of those useless PhD thingies. And look where his posh Cambridge education got him - a flipping poet, for chrissakes! #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by David Graeber
#29. The definitive anthropological work on barter, by Caroline Humphrey, of Cambridge, could not be more definitive in its conclusions: No example of a barter economy, pure and simple, has ever been described, let alone the emergence from it of money; all available ethnography suggests that there never has been such a thing. #Quote by David Graeber
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Ian McEwan
#30. She had not thought it would be so easy to slip into the old roles. Cambridge had changed her fundamentally and she thought she was immune. No one in her family, however, noticed the transformation in her, and she was not able to resist the power of their habitual expectations. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#31. I was just looking at moving to Cambridge, and a house I was looking at cost a million dollars. Because somehow, that's what a house costs. And I was thinking, "How can it be?" And I was thinking, "What am I doing? Am I going to be Niall Ferguson, that horrible man? #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Penelope Fitzgerald
#32. That was what he wanted to tell his audience at Cambridge. He divided classical satirists into two classes - fierce men starving in garrets, and renouncing popularity and circulation to dwell in tubs, and calm good-livers "who tell amusingly the kind of truth that no one has ever denied." But for the present century the right spirit, he believed, was self-satire, the ability to see humor in the constant small defeats of life, and "the power to be startled by nothing, however extravagant." The subject, in the end, turned out to be more relevant than it had seemed, as anyone could have told who had heard Eddie and Wilfred laughing together. #Quote by Penelope Fitzgerald
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Susan Shwartz
#33. Could you just imagine? If every suicide rose--think of Faulkner's Quentin Compson as a vampire. I don't hate the South I don't I don't. She wondered how they'd have worked it out in Cambridge when Quentin threw himself off the Andersen bridge into the Charles amid the odor of the honeysuckle, not the beer, sweat, rum, and tainted magnolias of this city, precariously beneath the level of the water. The Compson blood had thinned out; at least this way, he's restore it after a fashion. #Quote by Susan Shwartz
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Peter Higgs
#34. It shouldn't be a Higgs field. If it's anybody's, it should be Goldstone field, I think. When Nambu wrote his short paper in 1960, Jeffrey Goldstone of Cambridge University, who was visiting Cern, heard about it. He then wrote a paper which was conceptually similar to what Nambu had done, but a simpler model. #Quote by Peter Higgs
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Penelope Fitzgerald
#35. How could the wind be so strong, so far inland, that cyclists
coming into the town in the late afternoon looked more like
sailors in peril? This was on the way into Cambridge, up Mill
Road past the cemetery and the workhouse. On the open
ground to the left the willow-trees had been blown, driven
and cracked until their branches gave way and lay about the
drenched grass, jerking convulsively and trailing cataracts of
twigs. The cows had gone mad, tossing up the silvery weeping
leaves which were suddenly, quite contrary to all their exper-
ience, everywhere within reach. Their horns were festooned
with willow boughs. Not being able to see properly, they
tripped and fell. Two or three of them were wallowing on
their backs, idiotically, exhibiting vast pale bellies intended by
nature to be always hidden. They were still munching. A scene
of disorder, tree-tops on the earth, legs in the air, in a university
city devoted to logic and reason. #Quote by Penelope Fitzgerald
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Joan Baez
#36. That was sheer luck that it [being immersed into folk scene] happened when my voice began to develop. I don't know exactly what would have happened if I hadn't been alive and well and really lively in the Cambridge scene. But (the folk scene) was, and I fell into it absolutely naturally in the little coffee shops, and pretty soon it was Newport and then it was an overwhelming response internationally, actually. #Quote by Joan Baez
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Emily Hahn
#37. There had been a time, until 1422, when a number of both Gaelic and Anglo-Irish students attended Oxford and Cambridge in England. But fellow students had complained that Irish living together in large numbers sooner or later got noisy and violent and there was no handling them. Accordingly, the universities imposed a quota system on Irishman, and decreed that those admitted must be scattered around among non-compatriots: exclusively Irish halls of residence were banned. #Quote by Emily Hahn
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Clive James
#38. The Language Laboratory at Cambridge is a very good way of finding out about grammar and the vocabulary and that's why I learned to read German and later on I added Spanish, the standard European languages. #Quote by Clive James
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Alain De Botton
#39. There are people who say, 'Oh this guy is quite thick.' I think the reason is that, increasingly, I don't mind being simple in terms of literary expression. Others say, 'No, no, no. He went to Cambridge. He got a good degree. He must be Einstein.' #Quote by Alain De Botton
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Andrew Wiles
#40. I grew up in Cambridge in England, and my love of mathematics dates from those early childhood days. #Quote by Andrew Wiles
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by Bertrand Russell
#41. I am looking forward very much to getting back to Cambridge, and being able to say what I think and not to mean what I say: two things which at home are impossible. Cambridge is one of the few places where one can talk unlimited nonsense and generalities without anyone pulling one up or confronting one with them when one says just the opposite the next day. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Dowbiggin Cambridge quotes by William Browne
#42. The king to Oxford sent a troop of horse, For Tories own no argument but force; With equal care, to Cambridge books he sent, For Whigs allow no force but argument. #Quote by William Browne
