Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by G.M.W. Wemyss
#1. When does the year begin? Well: that rather depends: on who you are, and where. The Church kalendar – like the academic, which is hewn of the ecclesiastical – begins after the harvest-tide, with Advent, a time of preparation, light kindling and shining forth even as darkness gathers. The countryman's calendar is governed by the rhythms of the earth, of sowing and of harvest. The angler's year, the shooting man's, the hunter's, all these are in the disposition of God – or Nature, if you fancy yourself allergic to God – even as is the countryman's. #Quote by G.M.W. Wemyss
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Mort W. Lumsden
#2. FV: Hasn't all art, in a way, submitted to words - reduced itself to the literary...admitted its failure through all the catalogues and criticism, monographs and manifestos -

ML: Explanations?

FV: Exactly. All the artistry, now, seems expended in the rhetoric and sophistry used to differentiate, to justify its own existence now that so little is left to do. And who's to say how much of it ever needed doing in the first place? [...] Nothing's been done here but the re-writing of rules, in denial that the game was already won, long ago, by the likes of Duchamp, Arp, or Malevich. I mean, what's more, or, what's less to be said than a single black square?

ML: Well, a triangle has fewer sides, I suppose.

FV: Then a circle, a line, a dot. The rest is academic; obvious variations on an unnecessary theme, until you're left with just an empty canvas - which I'm sure has been done, too.

ML: Franz Kline, wasn't it? Or, Yves Klein - didn't he once exhibit a completely empty gallery? No canvases at all.

FV: I guess, from there, to not exhibit anything - to do absolutely nothing at all - would be the next "conceptual" act; the ultimate multimedia performance, where all artforms converge in negation and silence. And someone's probably already put their signature to that, as well. But even this should be too much, to involve an artist, a name. Surely nothing, done by no-one, is the greatest possible artistic achievement. #Quote by Mort W. Lumsden
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by John Ortberg
#3. Love of learning led to monasteries, which became the cradle of academic guilds. #Quote by John Ortberg
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Charles Kaiser
#4. Only one deputy, one admiral, and one leading academic remain with the Free French in London, and de Gaulle notices that all of his earliest supporters are either Jews or Socialists. A man of mythic pride, de Gaulle is infuriated by his total dependence on the British. #Quote by Charles Kaiser
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#5. The beetle, endemic to Africa's Namib desert - where there is just 1.3 cm of rainfall a year - has inspired a few proof-of-concepts in the academic community, but this is the first time a self-filling water bottle has been proposed. The beetle survives by collecting condensation from the ocean breeze on the hardened shell of its wings. The shell is covered in tiny bumps that are water attracting (hydrophilic) at their tips and water-repelling (hydrophobic) at their sides. The beetle extends and aims the wings at incoming sea breezes to catch humid air; tiny droplets 15 to 20 microns in diameter eventually accumulate on its back and run straight down towards its mouth. NBD #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by David Foster Wallace
#6. The most dangerous thing about an academic education is that it enables my tendency to over-intellectualize stuff, to get lost in abstract thinking instead of simply paying attention to what's going on in front of me. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Sol Hurok
#7. If you love the things you do, you don't age, you always remain young. Age is for the calendar. #Quote by Sol Hurok
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Alain De Botton
#8. Academic masochism reflects a metaphysical prejudice that the truth should be a hard-won treasure, that what is read or learnt easily must therefore be flighty and inconsequential. The truth should be like a mount to be scaled, it is dangerous, obscure and demanding. Under the light of the library reading room, the academics' motto reads: the more a text makes me suffer, the truer it must be. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by David Denby
#9. Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one 'hegemonic discourse' in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools can't begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead. #Quote by David Denby
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Pablo Picasso
#10. The academic teaching on beauty is false. We have been misled, but so completely misled that we can no longer find so much as a shadow of a truth again. The beauties of the Parthenon, the Venuses, the Nymphs, the Narcisusses, are so may lies. Art is not the application of a canon of beauty, but what the instinct and the brain can conceive independently of that canon. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Mark Twain
#11. Statistics show that we lose more fools on this day than in all the other days of the year put together. This proves, by the number left in stock, that one Fourth of July per year is now inadequate, the country has grown so.
- Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar #Quote by Mark Twain
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Regina Brett
#12. It's rare to find someone excited over jury duty. If they're out there, I've never met them. Not a one. When the summons for jury duty arrives in the mail, how many people scream, 'Yes!' and run to clear the calendar? None. Our first and only reaction is, 'Oh, no,' quickly followed by, 'How can I get out of this?' #Quote by Regina Brett
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Moby
#13. For me, love is very non-academic. Love, it's a very physical thing. I don't mean physical in terms of - I mean, it can be sexual. But those moments when I'm aware of the fact that I love someone or love something, it really manifests physically. #Quote by Moby
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by William F. Buckley Jr.
#14. Halfway through the second term of Franklin Roosevelt, the New Deal braintrusters began to worry about mounting popular concern over the national debt. In those days the size of the national debt was on everyone's mind. Indeed, Franklin Roosevelt had talked himself into office, in 1932, in part by promising to hack away at a debt which, even under the frugal Mr. Hoover, the people tended to think of as grown to menacing size. Mr. Roosevelt's wisemen worried deeply about the mounting tension ...

And then, suddenly, the academic community came to the rescue. Economists across the length and breadth of the land were electrified by a theory of debt introduced in England by John Maynard Keynes. The politicians wrung their hands in gratitude. Depicting the intoxicating political consequences of Lord Keynes's discovery, the wry cartoonist of the Washington Times Herald drew a memorable picture. In the center, sitting on a throne in front of a Maypole, was a jubilant FDR, cigarette tilted almost vertically, a grin on his face that stretched from ear to ear. Dancing about him in a circle, hands clasped together, their faces glowing with ecstasy, the braintrusters, vested in academic robes, sang the magical incantation, the great discovery of Lord Keynes: "We owe it to ourselves." With five talismanic words, the planners had disposed of the problem of deficit spending. Anyone thenceforward who worried about an increase in the national debt was just plain ignorant of the cent #Quote by William F. Buckley Jr.
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Agatha Christie
#15. I pass over the spectacle of Poirot on a camel. He started by groans and lamentations and ended by shrieks, gesticulations and invocations to the Virgin Mary and every Saint in the calendar. In the end, he descended ignominiously and finished the journey on a diminutive donkey. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Aileen Erin
#16. They were so handsome that they made me feel self-conscious. They could definitely make a calendar of Peruvian hunks. Or more accurately, Peruvian werewolves. I knew Cosette would buy one. As #Quote by Aileen Erin
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Erin Morgenstern
#17. Could you do such things when you were a dancer?' Tara asks her, as Tsukiko pulls a leg up impossibly far over her head.
'I would have had a much busier social calendar if I could,' Mme. Padva replies with a shake of her head. #Quote by Erin Morgenstern
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Douglas Adams
#18. Who pursued a brilliant academic career studying ancient philology, transformational ethics and the wave harmonic theory of historical perception, #Quote by Douglas Adams
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by George Vecsey
#19. Baseball cannot avoid conflicts. Games are played on Good Friday, the most solemn day on the Christian calendar. On Oct. 2, 1978, they played on Rosh Hashana, and Bucky Dent hit one into the screen at Fenway Park. Supply your own moral. #Quote by George Vecsey
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Trishelle Cannatella
#20. I'm on the cover of the lingerie football swimsuit calendar this year. #Quote by Trishelle Cannatella
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Petr Beckmann
#21. If we do not require a calendar to be geared to a tropical year (earth's orbit), but only that it be geared to some part of the celestial clock, then the Maya calendar was more accurate than the Julian calendar, more accurate than the Babylonian (solar-lunar) calendar; it intermeshed the "gear wheels" of Sun, Moon and Venus, and was based on a more accurate "gear ratio" than the other calendars, repeating itself only once in 52 years. #Quote by Petr Beckmann
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Haki R. Madhubuti
#22. Many people have serious academic degrees but cannot find a job, and sadly their degrees are so limited that they cannot even think about how to create a job for themselves. #Quote by Haki R. Madhubuti
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Scott Ritter
#23. War is not an academic exercise. #Quote by Scott Ritter
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Naguib Mahfouz
#24. The calendar has a magic that makes us imagine a memory can be resurrected and revived, but nothing returns. #Quote by Naguib Mahfouz
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#25. I had to make a choice - recede into the academic world, or wade into politics. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
#26. The theory is that immersion in the history of one's own group will overcome feelings of racial inferiority both by instilling pride in past ethnic accomplishments and by providing ethnic role models to inspire future performance. Telling black children how marvelous old Africa was will make them work harder and do better. But does study of the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome improve the academic record of Greek-American and Italian-American children? Not so that anyone has noticed. Why is it likely to help black children, who are removed from their geographical origins not by 50 years but by 300? #Quote by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Josephine Tey
#27. Next Christmas he was going to open this shabby sack of hers ... and put something in the money compartment. She would fritter it away, of course, in small unimportances; so that in the end she would not know what she had done with it; but perhaps a series of small satisfactions scattered like sequins over the texture of everyday life was of greater worth than the academic satisfaction of owning a collection of fine objects at the back of a drawer. #Quote by Josephine Tey
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Stephanie Witter
#28. Love doesn't conquer all; it's a powerful tool to overcome everything because it means you're not alone. #Quote by Stephanie Witter
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Thomas J. MacDonald
#29. There is never a right time for anything. There is just a time. You throw a dart at a calendar to pick a date; and, you do it on that day." T. Mac Donald
Spoken by the character Emperor Edward III in Righteous Reign. #Quote by Thomas J. MacDonald
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Ahmet Davutoglu
#30. As an academic, this was not the lifestyle I had planned for myself. Now I see myself everywhere. #Quote by Ahmet Davutoglu
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Dason Evans
#31. Mentoring is increasingly viewed as a key factor contributing to a successful career in medicine' Dimitriadis et al., 2012 Some famous mentoring relationships: Socrates to Plato John Stevens Henslow (academic and clergyman) to Charles Darwin Mariah Carey to Christina Aguilera Elmore Leonard (crime writer) to Quentin Tarantino Maya Angelou to Oprah Winfrey Dadabhai Naoroji (Indian leader) to Gandhi. #Quote by Dason Evans
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Rebecca Skloot
#32. Because of patent licensing fees, it costs $25,000 for an academic institution to license the gene for researching a common blood disorder, hereditary haemochromatosis, and up to $250,000 to license the same gene for commercial testing. At that rate, it would cost anywhere from $46.4 million (for academic institutions) to $464 million (for commercial labs) to test one person for all known genetic diseases. #Quote by Rebecca Skloot
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Rashmi Bansal
#33. Because knowledge does not need an academic greenhouse. It can bloom, anywhere. #Quote by Rashmi Bansal
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Theodore Hesburgh
#34. There is no academic virtue in playing mediocre football and no academic vice in winning a game that by all odds one should lose ... There has been a surrender at Notre Dame, but it is a surrender to excellence on all fronts, and in this we hope to rise above ourselves with the help of God. #Quote by Theodore Hesburgh
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Nicole Gale Anderson
#35. I was a huge bookworm, total nerd, so I was a victim in middle school. I was in three academic clubs, so I was an easy target. #Quote by Nicole Gale Anderson
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Adrian Mitchell
#36. The maiden Olympics had more to protest about than mere war, though. Central to its ethos was a rejection of two establishments the political one, certainly, but also that of the wider poetry world itself. It changed poetry for ever in the UK, ... It led to readings all over the country. You suddenly got more women reading and publishing poems, as well as gay guys and poets from all over the world. Until that time, published poetry had been very university-based white, male, middle-class. We were trying to break poetry out of its academic confines. #Quote by Adrian Mitchell
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Dan Groat
#37. As I have aged, I've been lucky never to reach old. Old is always at least five or ten years beyond my current calendar stage. #Quote by Dan Groat
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Greg Fitzsimmons
#38. I don't gamble anymore since I had a kid. I have fun in Vegas. I see shows, Cirque du Soleil. Don Rickles was in town last time I was there. I'll have lunch with George Wallace. I just look in the Weekly calendar and see who's performing, and inevitably, we all meet up late night at one of the casinos. Jesus, I sound boring. #Quote by Greg Fitzsimmons
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Matt Cartwright
#39. A balanced diet and physical activity are vital to academic performance. A healthy diet has a direct link to increased cognitive function and memory skills, decreased absenteeism from school, and improved mood. These advantages can help students stay focused and complete their coursework. #Quote by Matt Cartwright
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Charles Kettering

Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Walter E. Williams
#41. Universities have failed in their function of the pursuit of academic excellence by having dumbed down classes and granting degrees to students who are just barely literate and computationally incompetent. #Quote by Walter E. Williams
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Maureen Corrigan
#42. Social class. Class remains our national awkward topic, usually mumbled over in academic diversity workshops; indeed, most people don't know how to talk about class without automatically coupling it with race. That's because we Americans are loath to recognize that the sky's-the-limit potential we take as our birthright comes at a price far beyond what many Americans--of any race--can afford to pay. #Quote by Maureen Corrigan
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Martha Beck
#43. There are several ways to mess up your life by fighting to make your calendar age match your felt age. I live in the Southwest, a part of the country with more than its share of fair skies, material wealth, and people who are trying not to be as old as they are. #Quote by Martha Beck
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by J.D. Robb
#44. You're earlier than expected, and appear to have gotten through the day without destroying any article of clothing. I must note this event down on my calendar."
"Bitch when I'm late, bitch when I'm early. You could go pro on the bitching circuit. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Macalester Academic Calendar quotes by Michael Lewis
#45. The first thing Gutenberg sought to publish, after the Bible, was a laxative timetable he called a "Purgation-Calendar." Then there is the astonishing number of anal German folk sayings. "As the fish lives in water, so does the shit stick to the asshole!," to select but one of the seemingly endless examples. #Quote by Michael Lewis
