My father is a college professor and that's about the extent of my college experience. I'm sort of a professional student forever. I think just as human beings we always have a student who is alive in us and is waiting to pop up and make us feel like we are 16 years-old again.
Every student of comedy should see Dame Edna at least twice.
I just wanted to be a composer; I became an actor by default, really. I got a scholarship to a college of music and drama, hoping to take a scholarship in music. But I ended up as an acting student, so I've stuck with that for the last 50-odd years.
Somehow I think it was declared very early on that I was the - if not the black sheep of the family, not a very good student.
I had a briefcase at one point, but it was a kind of 1980s New Wave briefcase. It was made of some kind of cardboard and it had metal hinges. It was kind of faux industrial looking, and I used to carry my books in it rather than a backpack. I didn't want to have normal student accoutrements.
I had never thought that I would be involved in narrative structures. As a young guy, I was more interested in abstract modeling. But as I got older, I began to see that there was no reason to limit myself to any intellectual or conceptual postulate, when in fact I'm a professional student of music.
It's a good idea to revitalize community colleges, to cut back, to modify the student loan program so it doesn't go through banks.
I am a student of stupidity. I am a political reporter.
P. J. O'Rourke
I think every high school student who was alert during the early '60s got very embittered by the slow progress and the violence surrounding the Civil Rights Movement.
P. J. O'Rourke
I'm a dad, I'm a husband, I'm an activist, I'm a writer and I'm just a student of the world.
Michael J. Fox
In a sinful world, no community can exist for long where nobody is ever held accountable: no teacher would grade a student's performance; no citizen would sit on a jury or call a failed leader to account.
Lewis B. Smedes
I was a good student when I was a kid, and I did everything I was supposed to do, and I got A's.
Learn how to prioritize all your debt. And did you know student loan debt is the most dangerous debt any of us can have?
I was a good little boy and a good student. I've never been arrested.
I'm not speaking as someone who has reached satori or anything else. I'm a student.
I've always maintained that I see myself as a student. There's always something to learn and be challenged by and hopefully grow from.
In a Glasser Quality School there is no such thing as a closed book test. Students are told to get out their notes and open their books. There is no such thing as being forbidden to ask the teacher or another student for help.
As a graduate student, I wrote a long paper connecting the dots between mathematical models of learning and language development in children. It was published in a major journal.
As every student in Philosophy 101 learns, nothing can force me to believe that anyone except me is conscious. This power to deny that other people have feelings is not just an academic exercise but an all-too-common vice, as we see in the long history of human cruelty.
I wasn't the best student. I wasn't stupid, but I wasn't paying a lot of attention.
Many writers can't make a living. So to be able to teach how to write is valuable to them. But I don't really know about its value to the student. I don't mean it's useless. But I wouldn't have wanted anyone to teach me how to write.
The ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other.
James A. Garfield
