  1. The Rhythm of Scholarship at SNC Philippines

  2. Scholars and Scholarship? • True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment. James Russell Lowell  1819-1891, American Poet, Critic, Editor • The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people. Geoffrey Chaucer  1340-1400, British Poet • The success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly a courtier-like success, not kingly, not manly. Henry David Thoreau 1817-1862, American Essayist, Poet, Naturalist • A scholar who cherishes the love of comfort is not fit to be deemed a scholar. • Lao-Tzu BC 600-?, Chinese Philosopher, Founder of Taoism, Author of the ''Tao Te Ching''  • The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr. • Mohammed c.570-c.632, Meccan Spiritual Leader  • The office of the scholar is to cheer, to raise, and to guide men by showing them facts amidst appearances. He plies the slow, unhonoured, and unpaid task of observation. He is the world's eye. Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist  • The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning while those other subjects merely require scholarship. Robert A. Heinlein 1907 – 1988, American Science Fiction writer • I am an old scholar, better-looking now than when I was young. That's what sitting on your ass does to your face. Leonard Cohen  1934-, Canadian-born American Musician, Songwriter, Singer
