Quotations about academics

Neil deGrasse TysonOur academic system rewards people who know a lot of stuff and generally we call those people smart, but at the end of the day who do you want- the person who can figure things out that they've never seen before or the person who can rattle off a bunch of facts?

 - Neil deGrasse Tyson

I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike - and I don't think there really is a distinction between the two - are always dominated by tools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be Liked.

 - Harold Bloom

Albert EinsteinBy academic freedom I understand the right to search for truth and to publish and teach what one holds to be true. This right implies also a duty: one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.

 - Albert Einstein
