Pedantic Quotations

Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgments of one another.
Desiderius Erasmus

I believe that science fiction is as profound as you want it to be or it can be very simple entertainment, and I'm all for very simple entertainment. Every now and then we all need to come home, veg-out, watch something and not think too deeply about it. It's what you want it to be. We tend to steer clear of being pedantic; it's entertainment first, otherwise we'd be on a lecture circuit.
Joe Flanigan

For an author to write as he speaks is just as reprehensible as the opposite fault, to speak as he writes; for this gives a pedantic effect to what he says, and at the same time makes him hardly intelligible.
Arthur Schopenhauer

'Tis well enough for a servant to be bred at an University. But the education is a little too pedantic for a gentleman.
William Congreve

A good designer must rely on experience, on precise, logic thinking; and on pedantic exactness. No magic will do.
