Like the child, the creative writing student is posited as a centre of vulnerable creativity, needful of attention and authority.
The most dangerous thing about student riots is that adults take them seriously.
I tell a student that the most important class you can take is technique. A great chef is first a great technician. ‘If you are a jeweler, or a surgeon or a cook, you have to know the trade in your hand. You have to learn the process. You learn it through endless repetition until it belongs to you.
Too often, teachers assume that they are introducing a book or concept to students for the first time. In fact, many units are repeated over the course of a student’s K-12 experience.
I have goals and ambitions, and I see myself as a lifelong baseball student. I have certain philosophies that I’d like to test at some point at the big league level. The job of manager appeals to me, a coach appeals to me, at a different time frame.
You can take a school like the University of Colorado, with a selective admission standard. It has a better caliber student going in, so you ought to have a better caliber coming out.
But parents and schools have their priorities; making sure our kids eat right because research shows a clear connection between nutrition and student performance in school.

I was a good student and stuff like that.
I was a brilliant student. I always try to be the best.
The difference between the student and the born composer is he really hears the thing, and they have to stage it and manipulate it by technical equipment.
In the 1970s, what I, as a young foreign student studying in the United States, found most dynamic, exciting and impressive about this country is what much of the world continues to value most about the U.S. today: its open intellectual culture, its great universities, its capacity for discovery and innovation.
I’m still a student of fashion, but I like hooking up with the people that really know how to make cool clothes.
If you can get a teen leader in each sector of a student population, you can pull people in. Everybody wants to get involved, but most are too afraid. When they see a person they think is cool leading it, they’re first to join.

Liberty University will not lend its name or financial support to any student group that advances causes contrary to its mission.
Negativity sells. I have been labelled a rebel. If I had been one, would I have got married at 23? Would I have been a straight A student?
During my first year as a graduate student, we worked on a measurement of the isotope shift and hyperfine structure of mercury isotopes.
As any student of literature knows, the books that last are often not the books that are most popular when they are written. Both ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘The Great Gatsby’ were complete failures, critically and commercially, when they first appeared.
We need to reward the ‘thankless job’ of substitute teaching with better pay and chances for permanent positions. I look forward to the day when no student comes home saying, ‘I didn’t learn much today… we had a sub.’
I met my wife Anne who was a sociology student, and her influence together with activities associated with the student movement of the time opened up my interests amongst other things into the theatre, art, music, politics and philosophy.

Even growing up the way I did, I was shocked by the level of poverty I saw as a college student. I thought the best way to understand it was to get close to it on the ground level.

Whether we are working to pay off student loans, credit card debt, paying for elder or childcare, or even trying to save for retirement, the idea of the American dream still remains just that – a dream.
Advancements in technology have become so commonplace that sometimes we forget to stop and think about how incredible it is that a girl on her laptop in Texas can see photos and cell phone video in real time that a young college student has posted of a rally he’s at in Iran.
There’s very little that’s comparable to seeing the spark in a student’s face when she gets something that she’s been struggling with.
It’s very hard to remain a student in life.
A really interesting and happy time was when I first went to Florence as a student and studied Italian. I was living in a pensione on an allowance of £40 a month, which was princely. I did a lot of work and enjoyed myself immensely.
The Strandbeest is a self-replicating meme, a brain virus. It infects the student’s brain. In fact, the Strandbeest abuse students for their reproduction. For two years, this reproduction fell into a flow acceleration. Now, 3D printers produce walking mini Strandbeests.
I’m always a great student of writers’ work habits. Balzac sat at his desk dressed in a monk’s robe, and he always had to have a rotten apple on his desk. The smell of the apple inspired him somehow.
The ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other.
In 1765, Parliament passed the Stamp Act, which, as any American high school student can tell you, was an act that apparently had something to do with stamps.
I started with capital of about $1,500, a princely sum for a student coming out of college, an amount I borrowed from my father.
High school was interesting. For a lot of people, high school was just a big social experiment, and I think the value of high school was not so much learning how to be a great student… but I think it’s learning how to interact with people and be social. I would say that in that endeavor, I completely failed.
I didn’t run for student council president. I don’t see myself in any way in elected office. I love policy. I’m not particularly fond of politics.
Instead, California is one of only 10 states that provides in-state college and university tuition to illegal immigrants. That’s grossly unfair to a legal high school student who moves out of California for a year, then returns to attend college.
The results showed that Joe Mokoena and I had made history. For the first time in the history of education in South Africa, two African students had passed the JC with a First Class degree, regarded as a rare achievement for any student.
When ’36 Chowringhee Lane’ was released in 1981, I was a student of the Film and Television Institute of Tamil Nadu.

I got into underground comics fairly early on and kind of wandered away from the superhero stuff, but I was an art student and I was drawing a lot as a kid.
Colleges do not merely offer preparation for the future; they occupy four years of a student’s life, and an institution should do what it can to make these years absorbing and enjoyable.

If I can get some student interested in science, if I can show members of the general public what’s going on up there in the space program, then my job’s been done.
I was lousy in school. Real screwed-up. A moron. I was antisocial and didn’t bother with the other kids. A really bad student. I didn’t have any brains. I didn’t know what I was doing there. That’s why I became an actor.
I’ve always been a writer because I’ve always been a student. My mom’s a retired professor, so I come from a very academic background. I love writing, you know?

Common Core, the initiative that claims to more accurately measure K-12 student knowledge in English and math, also encourages children to step up their ‘critical thinking.’
Anjelica Huston and Kelly MacDonald are both really special. Anjelica has such a fresh point of view about acting and doesn’t seem jaded at all. She seems more like a student and yet she is veteran actor who really brings it.
I was a really good student. In the sixth grade, I was reading at a twelfth grade reading level. But I got bored.
Teaching can be learning, especially if student curiosity with the question ‘What’s going on here?’ can be elicited.
Denmark has long been regarded as one of the world’s most attractive nations, for citizens and tourists alike. My own visits there, years ago as a student, were delightful.

I wasn’t a very good student. I prefer to learn by experience.
I was a good student until I turned 15. Then, all of a sudden, it didn’t matter to me anymore. Isn’t that funny. I don’t want to go to college. I always knew that. But it’s hard. My friends are going, and I feel a little left behind.
Having recorded his first album, ‘Tapestry,’ in 1969, in Berkeley, California, during the student riots, McLean, a native New Yorker, became a kind of weather vane for what he called the ‘generation lost in space.’

I just want to go to university and have fun – I want to be an ordinary student. I’m only going to university. It’s not like I’m getting married – though that’s what it feels like sometimes.
I learned that when something just has to be said to move the discussion along, or broaden it or deepen it, if I can just keep my mouth shut for five minutes a student will say it. So for me a lot of teaching is about keeping my mouth shut.
Although attracted by the humanities, I had chosen medicine as a career, seduced by the image of the ‘man in white’ dispensing care and solace to the suffering. But science was lurking around the corner, in the form of an unpaid student assistantship in the laboratory of physiology.
I was kind of shy as a kid. I was a pretty good student. I was a wallflower, or nerd, if you will.
I had a 2-week courtship with a fellow student in the fiction workshop in Iowa and a 5-minute wedding in a lawyer’s office above the coffee shop where we’d been having lunch that day. And so I sent a cable to my father saying, ‘By the time you get this, Daddy, I’ll already be Mrs. Blaise!’
Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is my favorite full-length ballet, Sergei Prokofiev’s breathtaking score a favorite composition of music. As a student of martial arts, I loved drawing my sword in defense of my Capulet kin.
‘Mary Poppins,’ the movie, was an object of mockery if you were a student in the ’60s, something to be laughed at.
I was always a very good student, 3.98 GPA… But once I found out I only had to take math and science for two years, I didn’t take them junior or senior year. And I convinced my high school to give me actual credits for doing professional shows in Minneapolis… as work-study.
Talent has no gender. People are hiring young male directors right out of film school, off of a student film or off of a film at Sundance for millions of dollars. You can do the same with a female. It’s not a risk about the work if you respect the film that they made.
The student who deceives himself into thinking that he is giving his life like an ascetic in the spirit of sacrifice for art, is the victim of a deplorable species of egotism.
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.
People internalize, from the jail to student loan debt, to credit card debt, to unemployment to the whole collective. It manifests itself in many ways, in people’s home lives, domestic stuff.

Class I to XII wasn’t much help; I was always a mediocre student. But when I pursued higher education and studied economics with theatre or psychology with science fiction, I got a whole new world view.
I was not an anthropology student prior to the war. I took it up as part of a personal readjustment following some bewildering experiences as an infantryman and later as a prisoner of war in Dresden, Germany. The science of the Study of Man has been extremely satisfactory from that personal standpoint.
Don’t we realise that the student of today is the executive of tomorrow?
You can’t be a professor without having been a student. You can’t be a consultant without having been a research associate. So, if you outsource the least sophisticated jobs, at some stage, the next step of the ladder has to follow.
I was perhaps the worst student you have ever seen. You know, I thought I was stupid, all my classmates thought I was stupid, so there was general agreement.
I was a good student – a geek, really – editor of the school paper, thought I was going to go to university.
For a black student to work in southwest Mississippi for example – or in the Delta in 1960, 1961, 1962 – was high-risk work.
Sometimes I loved the disruptive student in class who livened up lectures with wisecracks – it put a spin on things, added flavor, made me laugh. Other times, I wished the heckler would just shut up so I could learn something.

I love school. I was a great student.
I’m one of those directors who read reviews, even if they’re bad, because I started as a film critic as a cinema student. I indulge in the art of criticism in general.

The idea that computers can ever replace teachers and schools reveals a deep lack of understanding about the role leadership plays in student success.
Although I don’t come from a musical background, I was given piano lessons along with my sisters, but I wasn’t what you would call a good student. I tended to write songs rather than do scales.
I liked English and art and did a lot of painting. And for some reason I was good at math, but I wasn’t an A student. I really had to work hard to get good grades.
I was a student in London in the ’70s, so CBGB really wasn’t on my radar at all. Obviously, I was aware of the emergence of the Police in England and as an art student, I was very aware of David Byrne, but I suppose my musical taste at that time certainly didn’t stretch towards the Dead Boys or the Ramones.
On YouTube, there’s a right-wing extremism funnel. You start by watching a college student ranting about how dumb feminism is. It’s wrong, but it’s not especially sinister. And then, three suggested videos later, you’re hearing about why we need a white ethno-state to save the race from a third-world invasion.
Kathy Dewar, my high-school English teacher, introduced me to journalism. From the moment I wrote my first article for the student paper, I convinced myself that having my name in print – writing in English, interviewing Americans – validated my presence here.
My first vote was for a communist in east London when I was a medical student. But I’ve voted Tory, Labour and Lib Dem in my time.
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 would have to say I was an excellent student. I was the type to always do my homework and study when I needed to. I never really partied or did anything like that.
I was a good student, but I was the biggest procrastinator.
I think a lot of teachers feel like they’re teaching to a test. Our response is you teach to a student, you really teach to the kid.
The things that inform student culture are created and controlled by the unseen culture, the sociological aspects of our climbing culture, our ‘me’ generation, our yuppie culture, our SUVs, or, you know, shopping culture, our war culture.
I hope that basketball gains momentum and kids understand that you can actually make a living from it. Not just the N.B.A. You can get a scholarship, a free degree – like, no student loan you have to pay off. That’s huge in life. Once they realize that in New Zealand, I hope they get inspired.
There are three elements to perceived popularity. A student has to be visible, recognizable and influential.
I was in the drama club, and I was one of seven co-presidents of the student body. Students elected me; I don’t know why! There were only 330 kids in my high school, though, so it wasn’t a lot of kids to impress or reign over.
By giving professors jobs for life, universities create a feeling of unanswerable power among too many. Tenured professors who are uninterested in serving the student body are less likely to respond favorably to criticism, and are more likely to feel the freedom to intimidate or harass those with opposing viewpoints.
I studied in Britain and spent great moments of my life there as a student living in Belsize Park. I admire the British trait of the stiff upper lip in the face of adversity. My wife studied in Britain, too, and both of us have many friends there.
I entered the University of Natal as a preliminary-year student in 1966 and stayed on to June 1972, when I was expelled from the university. I was then doing third-year medicine.
So that the failures to pass a civil rights bill isn’t because of Black Power, isn’t because of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; it’s not because of the rebellions that are occurring in the major cities.
I had never thought that I would be involved in narrative structures. As a young guy, I was more interested in abstract modeling.

I was a grad student at UC Berkeley when I bought my Apple II and it suddenly because a lot more interesting than school.
More than ever, a college diploma unlocks economic opportunity, provides students with a wealth of new skills and knowledge, and encourages innovation and growth. But more than ever, it also comes with a mountain of student loan debt.
I think it is most important for a teacher to play the pieces and studies that are being played by the student.
You would think, because I stayed to myself and I was shy, that I’d be a good student, but actually, I was a bad student. I was in detention a lot, mainly for cutting, being late to class. I was in tardy hall a lot. I hate the idea of homework. I don’t get it.
I always feel a bit trapped when a painting goes for millions of pounds and only one person can have it. If you can have that as well as a poster on every student’s wall, then you’re in a very enviable position. I’d like to do a Damien Hirst for £500 at some point.
Student journeys which were important to me were Sicily, Greece, and Egypt, where I really saw these buildings, and that is where you’re able to grasp what things mean.
I’ve been accepted at Cambridge University. I want to study Chinese history and archaeology. I want to become a student. I want to read Chinese history and go on a dig.
As a brand new graduate student starting in October 1956, my supervisor Michail Fischberg, a lecturer in the Department of Zoology at Oxford, suggested that I should try to make somatic cell nuclear transplantation work in the South African frog Xenopus laevis.
One of the things about being a law student is that the academic discipline of law is very often removed from the practical reality of law. How to complain, who to complain to, and whether or not you even need to invoke the law is very different in the real world from how it’s examined in the lecture theatre.
I ran the high school newspaper and was in student government. I played sports my whole life but was never picked as captain.
The most valuable aid I have found in teaching is to remember my own experiences as a student.
And I think it’s that time. And I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane. Though maybe a smaller one. Not that big gas guzzler you are going around to colleges and talking about student loans and stuff like that.
I’ve never professed to be anything but an average student.
Colleges accept the highest sub-scores from different administrations. So if a student takes the SAT many times instead of once, she has a larger pool of scores from which to pick out the highest math, critical reading, and writing.
Poe was a student of many things, and among those things he read and referred to in his work was the Bible.
I was a horrible student. I really hated school.

I am a student of evolution and adaptation.
I was a political science student.
At the peak of his scientific triumphs, Newton became a ‘head,’ a student of the inner spiritual world – or in modern terms, a neurologician. Modern physicists do not dwell on this dramatic life-change in their hero.
Berkeley had a liberal element in the student body who tended to be quite active. I think that’s in general a feature of intellectually active places.
I was a student in Germany when Hitler came to power.
As a teenager and a student, I totally cast away the Christian faith. I just believed it was stupid, and only stupid people could believe it. I actually became an anti-Christian, and very antagonistic.
I learned quickly that if the student’s perception is that you’re not listening to them, and not understanding them, they discredit you.
Our bombs are smarter than the average high school student. At least they can find Kuwait.
Let’s say a Soviet exchange student back in the ’70s would go back and tell the KGB about people and places and things that he’d seen and done and been involved with. This is not really espionage; there’s no betrayal of trust.
You might say those who can’t repay their student debts shouldn’t have borrowed in the first place. But they had no way of knowing just how bad the jobs market would become.
I know, as an overachiever straight-A student in school, I always responded to smart, strong, women represented on screen.
I hate ‘Rolling Stone’ – because I loved it so much. I had the ‘Cheap Tricks’ cover and the Clash cover on my wall for years, and I just hate what happened to it. It just became the smarmy grad student that sits next to you on the bus.
In 1982, fellow film student Amanda Richardson and I went to Greenham Common for the day – to see what was going on and to shoot some video. The day turned into a weekend, the weekend into seven months, and the dozens of hours of footage turned into a film – ‘Carry Greenham Home.’
You got to become a student of the game. You got to learn the game before you can go out there and play fast.
My real education began when I entered the University of Chicago in September 1951 as a graduate student.
General Custer was a close observer and student of personal character.
The history of American higher education over the twentieth century is an extraordinary one, the story of the creation of a powerhouse set of institutions that are the envy of the civilized world. Once they were the province, both among the student and faculty bodies, of children of privilege, generally WASPs.
I feel like I am in turbo mode as a student of entertainment.
Dartmouth is such a special college with its rich history, dedicated student body, and, as I’ve been learning more recently, colorful customs.
We had rising student achievement across the board because high standards, robust accountability, ending social promotion in third grade, real school choice across the board, challenging the teachers union and beating them is the way to go.
I’m not an A student; I’m not even a B student, but I’ve gotten a lot better with the reading because of texts. And I can voice-text and say whatever I want to people.
I see myself as more of a student, that I love to get down into the weeds of different problems and try to go through that. I don’t mind messaging, but I’m going to default back to the research side of things.
Every student of science, even if he cannot start his journey where his predecessors left off, can at least travel their beaten track more quickly than they could while they were clearing the way: and so before his race is run, he comes to virgin forest and becomes himself a pioneer.
Student loans are delaying retirements. They’re suppressing the housing market. They’re suffocating new business formation. They’re even leading young people to delay getting married and having children.
A judge is a law student who marks his own examination papers.
The biggest mistake in student films is that they are usually cast so badly, with friends and people the directors know. Actually you can cover a lot of bad direction with good acting.
Being a student of Wuxia literature, I was aware ‘Crouching Tiger’ was book four in the ‘Crane Iron Pentalogy.’
Student life taught me a lesson – never bow down your head. Be straightforward and bold in whatever you do.
As a student I learned from wonderful teachers and ever since then I’ve thought everyone is a teacher.
I have a theory about that, if you have to say something, if you have encourage for one second a prospective acting student – he should not go in to acting.
American universities are so expensive. My family couldn’t afford to send me, so I took out student loans and had to pay my own way.
Into the soul of every student I would have instilled the patriotic fervor of Patrick Henry.
In the digital era, everyone is a student. Degrees given by formal education are not a value currency anymore. Technical skills and an individual’s ability to apply the outcomes are important, irrespective of age.
I can always see what I’ve done wrong. I’m always learning. I’m the perennial student.
When I say that I’m a grade-A student in motocross, I mean that I can sit on a bike and ride it. But I’m confident that, with time, I could do a 12 o’clock.
Just because you’re in college, or a university student, that does not mean you’re the only thing you are.
Jocelyn Bell joined the project as a graduate student in 1965, helping as a member of the construction team and then analysing the paper charts of the sky survey.
I really enjoyed Princeton as a graduate student.
When nearly a third of our high school students do not graduate on time with their peers, we have work to do. We must design our middle and high schools so that no student gets lost in the crowd and disconnected from his or her own potential.
I was never an A student. I never really liked going to school like many of my friends. There were just too many students and too competitive. We were sort of forced into studying to go to college. It was like if we didn’t go to college, society looked at us as failures. We didn’t know what to do with the situation.
I went to music school, and I guess I was a difficult, know-it-all type of student.
As a student in London, I had seen so many shows, so many plays and had seen so many greats of the day.
To be perfectly truthful, I was not a very brilliant student, even at chemistry school.
Student loan debt is the reason I don’t advise students who want to become entrepreneurs to apply to elite, expensive colleges. They can be as successful if they go to a relatively inexpensive public college.
For too many years, politicians in Washington have been eager to pledge more hard-earned taxpayer dollars to help deal with the student debt load. But this doesn’t sit right with the many Americans who take pride in making fiscally responsible choices and paying off their loans on time.
I was influenced by many, many different people in my student years, and I was always, I guess, immersed in a Navy environment, and so, obviously, that had a big impact when I decided what I wanted to do was go and be a Navy pilot. I was very familiar with the Navy community and felt very comfortable with it.
After graduation from high school, I attended the university entrance examination, and fortunately, I was accepted by the Department of Pharmacy and became a student at the Medical School of Peking University.
Certainly, every student and school ought to have standards and evaluation, but who sets those standards, and who writes the test? Whoever controls the test controls the school.
My teacher, Josef Gingold, a student of the French school, always loved the music of Saint-Saens and Henri Vieuxtemps and all the French repertoire.
Standardized testing is at cross purposes with many of the most important purposes of public education. It doesn’t measure big-picture learning, critical thinking, perseverance, problem solving, creativity or curiosity, yet those are the qualities great teaching brings out in a student.
I’d gone from being this art student messing about with music to this girl with a record deal, magazine front covers and all this hype. In many ways, it was everything I ever wanted, but when it happened all I felt was total, paralysing fear.
I had no choice but to work hard. I was a straight-A student, went to college, and I loved business. I never thought I was going to be a singer myself.
The great classics that, as a professional you don’t get to do, you do as a student, when you don’t know any better.
I established my first writing routine when I was 13. The school year had just ended, and I’d won a stack of books for being the best student in a number of subjects. The pile included several 60-leaved notebooks that I decided to fill with short stories.
The biggest barrier we’ve seen to student progress is this: School policies and practices often prevent good teachers from doing great work and even dissuade some talented Americans from entering the profession. This needs to change.
A lot of student directors used to pick other students to be in their graduate films, so. I ended up doing a couple of them just for fun. Eventually, I got an agent through a friend and I did some commercials; then I got Knots Landing.
Conceptually, I always took issue with bullies and those who took advantage of others, whether it was a teacher’s cruelty to a student, or a student who picked fights with others.
My grades put me in about 5,000th place in all of South Korea. If I kept going down that path, I would’ve become a successful man with a regular job. However, I was positive I’d be number one in the country as a rapper. So I asked my mother whether she wanted to have a son who was a first-place rapper, or a 5,000th-place student.
I was a student at SF State, and I honestly didn’t know where I was headed. I thought maybe something in the social sciences. But I happened to be living with a group of people, and one person was a film student. I was always keen on and aware of what she was doing.
I need to eliminate ‘like’ from my vocabulary. I begin sentences with, ‘That’s seriously like… ‘ I hear myself talking in this Los Angeles high-school student kind of way, and I hate it.
I was always a very good student.
In the years that I worked in museums, first as a summer student and eventually as a curator, one of the primary lessons I learned was this: History is shaped by the people who seek to preserve it. We, of the present, decide what to keep, what to put on display, what to put into storage, and what to discard.
I’m not terribly athletic. And… there’s a lot of things I’m not good at. And if it makes anybody feel better, I was really a pretty bad math student growing up.
When I was in junior high school, the teachers voted me the student most likely to end up in the electric chair.
I wasn’t the best student. I wasn’t stupid, but I wasn’t paying a lot of attention.
It was only in the early 1990s – during my student years as an aspiring scientist at Delhi University – that I discovered the world of cinema.
I would love for a regular student to have a student-athlete’s schedule during the season for just one quarter or one semester and show me how you balance that. Show me how you would schedule your classes when you can’t schedule classes from 2-to-6 o’clock on any given day.
Every student has something to offer, and every student deserves a nurturing learning environment.
There were some extremely good teachers there that were great artists really in their own right. It was actually very hard to concentrate on getting down to going any work being an art student especially when it’s a flighty thing at best.
I love being a student, if I could, I’d stay in school forever.
I’m a constant learner. You need to be a constant student because things change and you have to change and grow. And I emphasize the word ‘grow.’
As an impoverished student I used to spend days out in Selfridges, nibbling on samples of free cheese and dousing myself with scent in the perfume department.
I started at General Motors at 18 years old as a co-op student at the General Motors Institute, which is now Kettering.
I was a good student. My mom is a teacher, and her side of the family is all teachers. She put a big emphasis on getting good grades.
When the time came for me to go to college, there was only one scholarship that my high school offered at the time and I didn’t win that one, but that didn’t stop me. I went on to college anyway. I worked my way through it and paid my student loans for 11 years.
It is not so important to be serious as it is to be serious about the important things. The monkey wears an expression of seriousness which would do credit to any college student, but the monkey is serious because he itches.
A student never forgets an encouraging private word, when it is given with sincere respect and admiration.
The higher the social class of other students the higher any given student’s achievement.
I had been offered fellowships to enter as a graduate student at either Harvard or Princeton. But the Princeton fellowship was somewhat more generous, since I had not actually won the Putnam competition… Thus Princeton became the choice for my graduate study location.
I feel like a 1960s graduate student. I still work on note cards. I’ve never found a better system.
Young and dumb is something you gotta go through, but you’ve got to be a student.
I wasn’t a great student, but I was interested in this theater thing, and I could spend hours in the library researching why the cuffs in the 18th century had four buttons. It was my handle.
A self-taught man usually has a poor teacher and a worse student.
Grade school, middle school and high school were relatively easy for me, and with little studying, I was an honor student every semester, graduating 5th in my high school class.
My daughter loves romances. She’s a Ph.D student at George Washington University, and when my first book without a clinch cover came out, she said to me: ‘Finally, a book I can read on the Metro.’
The Chinese Student Association at Cornell put together their own play. It was all Asian people in the cast except for me, because they wanted to do a couple of scenes about an interracial relationship. I was the only non-Asian person on stage; the entire audience was Asian apart from my 10 friends that showed up.
I’m a part-time student, and I plan to finish my degree. I think there are a lot of part-time students with jobs on the side or stressful careers. I’m certainly not the first person to be working while I’m in university.
I wasn’t a particularly brilliant student, but on the other hand, I was very active in Student Union affairs and in student politics.
A healthy body means a healthy mind. You get your heart rate up, and you get the blood flowing through your body to your brain. Look at Albert Einstein. He rode a bicycle. He was also an early student of Jazzercise. You never saw Einstein lift his shirt, but he had a six-pack under there.
Medical knowledge and technical savvy are biodegradable. The sort of medicine that was practiced in Boston or New York or Atlanta fifty years ago would be as strange to a medical student or intern today as the ceremonial dance of a !Kung San tribe would seem to a rock festival audience in Hackensack.
Private student loans should be avoided at all costs.
I’m a student of cinema in general, not just of one particular genre. So it was very important to me and to my soul to go out and do something different.
In the mid- to late ’60s to the mid-’70s, when I was a student, there was a major change in the thinking about what art can be and how art is made.
Every student of comedy should see Dame Edna at least twice.
I’m a serious student of music, a perfectionist in the studio, and I take the arrangement and production of it very seriously, down to the mixing and mastering even. But at the same time I’m having so much fun with it. I try not to take myself so seriously.
I am a great student and fan of history.
In January 1962, when I was the author of one and a half unperformed plays, I attended a student production of ‘The Birthday Party’ at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol. Just before it began, I realised that Harold Pinter was sitting in front of me.
When I was a graduate student, the leading spirits at Harvard were interested in the history of ideas.
When I was six or seven, we went to the nearest English primary school, St Weonards, about seven miles away. The teaching was good, and this was the start of my beginning to shine as a student.
I was a senior high school student at the Far Eastern University when the war with Japan broke out in 1941.
I joined the Wildlife Conservation Society, working there, in 1995, but I started working with them as a student in 1991. I was appointed as a teaching assistant at my university because I accomplished with honor.
Don’t call me an intellectual. After all, there are a lot more people taking their A-levels each summer than signing for Real Madrid. I was just a good and serious student.
I’m less desperate now to express what’s inside me, that’s true – I act these days because it keeps me awake and interested, an eternal student.
Ending up-front fees should make it far easier for all students to go to university as they will no longer have to pay up to /1,125 out of their loans at the start of each year. Student loans will also rise to meet average living costs.
I remember being an art student and going to the Whitney in 1974 to see the exhibition of Jim Nutt, the Chicago imagist. It was then I transferred to school in Chicago, all because of that show.
I was, and am, a frustrated filmmaker and film student, and my passion and love for movies was so broad that, in the earlier part of my career, I stumbled into doing ‘Sports Night’ and was a comedy director.
My freshman year, I ran for student class president and lost. The next year, I ran for student class vice president, and I won.
School was rough for me. I was a good student in middle school, but high school wasn’t so fun. I still pulled through, though! I excelled in art, fashion, history and English literature – anything creative. Math and science I struggled a bit more in.
Just as I never liked bumper stickers – even though I do brake for animals, and if I had a kid, she would definitely be an honor student – I don’t like the idea of expressing my views through social-media-controlled rainbow-or-anything-else-ification.
There’s more student debt than credit card debt! Everywhere I go, I run into young people trying to build careers while they keep shelling out money on their education loans. If the economy is looking for a new generation of home-buyers, I can’t imagine they’ll get it from these folks.
I never consciously got into comedy. It was sort of one of those things where I was a theater student, I was acting, I was doing comedy, I was doing dramatic stuff, so it’s been something that I’ve always done and enjoyed doing and had an instinct to be relatively good at.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an employee, a student, a homemaker, a writer, it’s time to start forgetting about all the ways the world has promised you safety and comfort.
Lucio Tan Group has had an historic interest in education. From my days as a struggling working student, I knew that education is the key to escape from the clutches of poverty.
You know, it’s been proven that 35 to 40 hours a year with one-on-one attention, a student can get one grade level higher.
I just thought acting would be something to help out with my student loans, but my first year as an actress, I made more money than my parents. That’s when I realized it could turn into a career. After that, I put everything I had into it.
Grades are almost completely relative, in effect ranking students relative to others in their class. Thus extra achievement by one student not only raises his position, but in effect lowers the position of others.
One of the most important improvements in the No Child Left Behind Act for migrant students was the requirement for electronic transfer of migrant student records.
If you have a student who graduates from college and they don’t have a job, they are now able to stay on their family health plan.
I started in theatre when I was a teenager, and I sort of fell into screen acting by accident because I had friends who were at university studying how to be filmmakers, and they didn’t have to pay me to be in their student films.
The vast majority of students probably emerge from college with an adequate grasp of no more than a single method of inquiry. Even this capacity may erode over time if it does not relate to experiences and problems that recur in the student’s later life.
College costs continue to rise, and student loan debt threatens to price many Americans out of a college education and out of the middle class.
I was always a good student, but I didn’t read that much until I was 18 and I was working my way through college.
Art history became an A-level option at my school the year I started sixth form. This happened because another student and I cajoled and bullied the head of the art department into arranging it with the examination board.
Being a good Hans Haacke student, part of his influence on me is that there’s no difference between a gallery show and a film – or even an ad and a T-shirt-in terms of cultural legitimacy. They’re just different contexts in which to have some sort of communication.
I think that school just isn’t for everyone. A lot of people don’t learn well when they’re – have to sit in a place for eight hours. A lot of people learn best lying in their own bed, teaching themselves from books. And I was a bad student. I was a brat. If I was a teacher, I would not have liked myself.
I never had the high-paying job or the company car. It took me over a decade to pay off my student loans. I never had to worry about where to dock my yacht to reduce my taxes.
I hated school, but I was a good student. I made straight A’s.
I think I can be pretty focused, but as I say, it was more wanting to be the good student, seeing myself as a good student, and also, my parents had expectations. They wouldn’t have cared if I got a B or a C or even a D.
When I was in high school, I liked to pretend that I was a Russian foreign exchange student. I would do things like go into a pizza restaurant and tell them I’d never had pizza before, and they’d bring me into the kitchen and show me how to make an American pizza. It’s really fun.
I was a pretty disruptive student in class in school. I had a hard time paying attention. I had what they call A.D.D. now, back then I was just a hyper kid.
If you go to an elite school where the other students in your class are all really brilliant, you run the risk of mistakenly believing yourself to not be a good student.
I started doing science when I was effectively 20, a graduate student of Salvador Luria at Indiana University. And that was – you know, it took me about two years, you know, being a graduate student with Luria deciding I wanted to find the structure of DNA; that is, DNA was going to be my objective.
One thing bothered me as a student. In the 1960s, human behavior was totally off limits for the biologist. There was animal behavior, then there was a long time nothing, after which came human behavior as a totally separate category best left to a different group of scientists.
I was not the best student. Thank God I had a lot of hockey talent.
I was a very good student. Procrastinating gives me anxiety, and getting a B really ticked me off. Sure, I didn’t always want to do my homework, but I actually really liked school. As nerdy as it sounds, I love learning.
I never insisted that I was a good student.
What I intended to accomplish was to rouse the student body, not by means of an organization, but solely by my simple words; to urge them, not to violence, but to moral insight into the existing serious deficiencies of our political system.
The arts, sciences, humanities, physical education, languages and maths all have equal and central contributions to make to a student’s education.
Even if you were to fall into extreme financial hardship and file for bankruptcy, you need to understand that your student loan debt will not be discharged in bankruptcy. It is the Velcro of all debts.
I think there are definitely two types of student: the academic kids and the 50% who fail. It’s very clear to see – it’s fact. We’re not doing enough for those who fail; they need a more physical, tactile approach, involving people skills, team-building, problem-solving, building things.
I had three jobs in college. The best day of my life was when I paid off my student loans, on my own.
While I was at Cornell in engineering, I was an engineering co-op student, and that turned out to be very valuable because we’d go out every other term to work in industry and have that close association with industry.
This may just be me, but I feel like everyone’s dream is to live as an American high school student. There are so many teen films set in America that you live vicariously through them, anyway.
Eight months later, having left Columbia, I was studying physics in a summer program and working in Colorado when I decided to enroll as a graduate student in biophysics.
What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it. Dull to the contemporary who reads it and invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it.
Tiananmen Square in early 1989 attracted many dreamers like Ma Jian, who returned from Hong Kong to a one-room shack in Beijing in order to join the student protests.
When I met Paul Ryan 22 years ago, he was a student at Miami of Ohio volunteering on my campaign.
Our highly qualified teachers not only work hard, but they care about each and every student that enters their classroom. I thank you, Montana teachers, for your sense of duty and compassion to our precious future generation.
I wanted to be a film student again, as a man in my 60s. To go someplace alone and see what you can cook up, with non-existent budgets. I didn’t want to be surrounded by comforts and colleagues, which you have when when you’re a big time director. I wanted to write personal works.
Time and again, a student will send me an urgent appeal to hear her, saying she is poor and wants my advice as to whether it is worthwhile to continue her studies. I invariably refuse such requests, saying that if the student could give up her work on my advice, she had better give it up without it.
I got involved when I was a graduate student at UCLA when UCLA was the first site on the net.
I grew up in Muenchen where my father has been a professor for pharmaceutic chemistry at the university. He had studied chemistry and medicine, having been a research student in Leipzig with Wilhelm Ostwald, the Nobel Laureate 1909. So I became familiar with the life of a scientist in a chemical laboratory quite early.
I was a terrible student. Still, I managed to get into college, but my daydreaming threatened to sabotage me. I used behavior modification to break the cycle. I started by setting an arbitrary time limit on studying: for every 15 minutes of study, I’d allow myself an hour of daydreaming. I set the alarm.
I have fought to protect those benefits that ensure better salaries for teachers across the Nation such as grants to pay off student loans and funding for Teach for America. Still, we must all do more to show our continued appreciation for our Nation’s leading role models.
A student of life considers the world a classroom.
I was in the drama club, and I was one of seven co-presidents of the student body. Students elected me – I don’t know why!
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.
Feminism is very much a part of a lot of my student’s lives, but they’re not going to march about it or take a public political stance. And I think more and more young women are claiming that they’re not feminists – even though they are.
I was always into fashion, and used to go on spending sprees when I was a university student in Miami. My father would be furious, but I would always say, ‘It was an emergency! I had a party to go to!’
I became a student of the history of religion. I am fascinated by how religions often center on mystical experience, and in the Old Testament tradition you find flames, the burning bush.
Faulkner turned out to be a great teacher. When a student asked a question ineptly, he answered the question with what the student had really wanted to know.
I was 16 and did a play at school. I was a rather good student… And then I did a play when I was 16 and completely lost all my concentration for academics.
I was like the family clown. The middle child entertaining. I was a lousy student, but interestingly, the nuns always let me write plays or do drawings, endless special projects.
Back in my days as a chemistry student, I used to be quite a technocrat. I was firmly convinced that scientists would have cornered God and photographed Him in color by 1951.
Living in London as a student is tough. And my heart goes out to every single drama student in London because, as an actor, it’s a creative process that you are taking on, and if you don’t get to do it every day, it hurts.
We need to have an educational system that’s able to embrace all sorts of minds, and where a student doesn’t have to fit into a certain mold of learning.
When I was a student, I studied philosophy and religion. I talked about being patient. Some people say I was too hopeful, too optimistic, but you have to be optimistic just in keeping with the philosophy of non-violence.
No two children learn in the same way. While we might agree that every American eight-year-old should be able to read and multiply, beyond those basics, there are few reasons to make every student follow the same path.
As a student in Beijing in 1996, I sometimes marveled at the sheer obscurity of the movies that somehow made it onto pirated discs in China.
My first-ever job in the movie business, I was an art student at Carnegie Mellon, and they were shooting the movie ‘Gung Ho’ in Pittsburgh, and I worked as an extra for a few days. Michael Keaton bumped into me in one scene, and it’s in the movie. And I worshipped him.
‘The Art Student’s War’ is, at its core, a traditional American wartime love story. As such, it is timely and engrossing. By the end, all its principal characters ‘have been to Hell and back.’
It was my great good fortune, while I was still a student at college, to have possessed a copy of an English translation of his great work ‘The Sensations of Tone.’ As is well known, this was one of Helmholtz’s masterpieces.
I was a terrible student. For me, to take a book home was a trial.
I think our model is sustainable. If all schools operated like Liberty and charged what we charge, there wouldn’t be a student loan problem in America.
I believe that the testing of the student’s achievements in order to see if he meets some criterion held by the teacher, is directly contrary to the implications of therapy for significant learning.
Ambiguity around ambiguity is forgivable in an unpublished poet and expected of an arts student on the pull: for a professional comedian demoting himself to the role of ‘thinker’, with stadiums full of young people hanging on his every word, it won’t really do.
I started out with the intention of studying physics. I was a terrible high school student outside of the fact that I did well in physics, but there’s a big difference between being good at physics and being a physicist, so I jettisoned that very quickly.
I’m a student of world religion, so to me, it’s hugely important to have knowledge and to understand what people are doing.
In the ’60s when I was a student, there was this campaign to destroy 75 percent of the old buildings in Paris, replacing them with modern architecture. I realized this as a dangerous utopia. This modern vision did not understand the richness of the city. Thankfully, such destruction did not happen.
When I was a student there in the mid-1990s, they had just created the weekend; depth and individuality were slowly returning after the austere, colorless low of the 1970s. When I returned to live in China from 2005 to 2013, the country was building everything anew.
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.
The more laws that governments pass, the less individual freedom there is. Any student of history will tell you that. Totalitarian countries ban pretty much everything.
At Libertyville High, I was a bad student, chronic truant, and all-round incorrigible. I was forever being sent to the principal’s office to be disciplined.
Judge: a law student who marks his own examination-papers.
I came up with the term ‘mindfreak’ because I didn’t like the word ‘magician.’ I felt like I wanted to coin a term that would be basically the reaction to my art. It would be a mindfreak and so that’s why I came up with that. But, many people say I’m really a student of humanity and psychology.
The Christian fact is very straightforward: To be a student is a calling. Your parents are setting up accounts to pay the bills, or you are scraping together your own resources and taking out loans, or a scholarship is making college possible.
I loved American filmmakers when I was growing up. I didn’t get to film school or anything. I was a very bad student. I just devoured film, but there was a point in my teens when I started to run a little film society.
No student ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him: it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required, that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.
My wife Victoria Harwood was art director on ‘Far North,’ and she had designed my student film, ‘The Sheep Thief.’
By making college unaffordable and student loans unbearable, we risk deterring our best and brightest from pursuing higher education and securing a good-paying job.
We spoke French at home and I didn’t know any English until I went to school. My mother was French and met my father when he visited France as a student on a teaching placement.
I was listening to Ministry and Garth Brooks and Charlie Pride and Wynton Marsalis, and then I would listen to Juvenile or Lil Wayne. It’s just that I’m a big fan of music. I’m a student of music. And I just want to learn and keep enhancing my education about the music.
The American Dream is not being dependent on the federal government for your health care, for your automobile, for your college education, for your student loan on and on and on.
I think traveling made me who I am. When I was 16, I was an exchange student in England, and that was the year that I kind of feel like I was on the road going one direction in life, and it just kind of shifted me over, and I finished high school, and I went traveling for three more years instead of going to college.
I am permanently a student of people who make great songs, but besides sort of learning by absorption, I just love listening to music, hearing what’s going on, hearing new things or new old things.
An education system where student selection is based on credit capacity and not merit capacity and where graduating students are no longer indebted to the nation, but increasingly indebted to the Australian Taxation Office – that’s no way to improve the quality of education.
I became an atheist because, as a graduate student studying quantum physics, life seemed to be reducible to second-order differential equations. Mathematics, chemistry and physics had it all. And I didn’t see any need to go beyond that.
When I was a student, I had a part time job as a barmaid at a dodgy pub in Kent.
The smarter the journalists are, the better off society is. For to a degree, people read the press to inform themselves – and the better the teacher, the better the student body.
I don’t dispute the accounts of My Lai 4, but I think that anyone who is a student of the war, or anyone who was there, would agree that anything you could imagine happening probably happened.
We need to make college affordable in price, and also have lower-cost student loans and more available grants for students.
I am particularly surprised that certain outlets look at pass rates irrespective of student population. As if inner city high school kids are to fare as well as college students.
Access to high-quality education is way too limited. The United States has the world’s most admirable higher education system, and yet it is very restrictive. It’s so hard to get into. I never got into it as a student.
Until fairly recently, Amish teachers would reprimand the student who raised his or her hand as being too individualistic. Calling attention to oneself, or being ‘prideful,’ is one of the cardinal Amish worries. Having your name or photo in the papers, even talking to the press, is almost a sin.
We know what the birth of a revolution looks like: A student stands before a tank. A fruit seller sets himself on fire. A line of monks link arms in a human chain. Crowds surge, soldiers fire, gusts of rage pull down the monuments of tyrants, and maybe, sometimes, justice rises from the flames.
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.
I was a good student in school.
I had been a student in Vienna, and one of the neat little things I had found out was about that zoo. It was a good debut novel for me to have published. I was 26 or 27 when it was published. I already had a kid and would soon have a second.
I would not say that I was, these days, a ‘student’ of philosophy, although in my youth I was quite deeply involved with certain aspects of the British pragmatists.
There are two men in Tolstoy. He is a mystic and he is also a realist. He is addicted to the practice of a pietism that for all its sincerity is nothing if not vague and sentimental; and he is the most acute and dispassionate of observers, the most profound and earnest student of character and emotion.
Ever since studying in Russia as a college student, I had been in a long-distance, one-sided love affair with Chechnya’s remarkable history, culture and rugged natural beauty.
Our professor was Marty Scorsese. Marty was a graduate student, or Mr. Scorsese, which is what I had to call him, and still do when I see him ’cause he gave me a C.
It’s something you dream about, working in Scotland, working in Glasgow, walking down the same streets I used to walk down when I was a drama student, daydreaming about being in an American TV show or doing something that was well known. I guess I sort of pinch myself.
There was one thing more than any other that turned this New York, liberal, Jewish, Columbia University graduate student away from modern liberalism: its use of moral equivalence to avoid confronting evil during the Cold War.
As a drama student I got into Thirties and Forties suits.
I’d like to be a student in Rabindranath Tagore’s school in Santiniketan in around 1915, dancing in the dance-dramas he wrote.
When I was an art student in the early 60’s before the acid scene began I was smoking pot just like anyone else who was an artist.
I really look forward to that opportunity to be a student and discover things. That keeps it interesting for me. And I sometimes get easily bored, and there are still some things I wanna talk about instead of repeating something.
I was a terrible science student, so I could never be a scientist; my mind doesn’t work that way. But I’ve learned to love the stories around science, and I have so much respect and fascination for the people who can make discoveries and find applications. There’s a lot of drama there.
Enacted under President George W. Bush’s administration with the promise to focus on individual student achievement and overall school performance, No Child Left Behind was heralded as groundbreaking. And in some ways, it was.
I conveniently was not accepted to film school, which I applied to in 1987, and so I decided I would become a filmmaker instead of a student.
I was a good student. I was lame. I was into school and didn’t really go out much, so I guess I wasn’t the coolest person on the planet.
I don’t have freedom in the United States to go into a public school and preach the Gospel, nor is a student free in a public school to pray, or a teacher free to read the Bible publicly to the students. At the same time, we have a great degree of freedom for which I am grateful.
I graduated from Jones College, man, in Jacksonville, Florida, baby! I couldn’t get in anywhere else, man. I was the worst student ever. I couldn’t get in anywhere else. My father insisted I go to college, so I graduated, made the dean’s list and everything.
I’ve always adored my father’s music, but ever since I’d started singing, whether it was while I was still a student at the University of Massachusetts or professionally, I avoided Dad’s material.
There is one thing a professor can be absolutely certain of: almost every student entering the university believes, or says he believes, that truth is relative.
You never know who you’re talking to. Don’t limit a young student’s dream, because that’s how we change the world.
After some minor pieces of theoretical study that I worked on, a student in my statistical mechanics class brought to my attention a problem in polyelectrolytes.
I love student life, but I also loved, from a young age, being in a working environment where you are treated as an adult.
My daughter was never offered ‘Student Of The Year 2.’
I was rather a poor student, too easily distracted – did a lot of gazing out of windows, fine for training to be a writer, but not a great way to achieve in the classroom. The truth is that I was happy to bumble along and do enough to avoid detention, but not much more.
I came into the Republican party in 1980, when I was a college student at Georgetown.
In 1989, a lone and still-anonymous Chinese student stood unarmed in front of a Chinese tank and gave the world an enduring image of the determination of China’s young to change their nation. He didn’t text message the tank or share a video on YouTube.
I was a little fat pudgy kid with big thick glasses, and I was quiet and never said a word, you know – teachers loved me, straight-A student.
Acquiring a repertoire in these days, when the vocal literature is so immense, so overwhelming, that the student with sense will devote all his energies to work and not imagine himself a martyr to art.
I spent eighteen months as a graduate student in physics at Columbia University, waiting unhappily for an opportunity to work in a laboratory and wondering if I should continue in physics.
I flunked my exam for university two times before I was accepted by what was considered my city’s worst university, Hangzhou Teachers University. I was studying to be a high school English teacher. In my university, I was elected student chairman and later became chairman of the city’s Students Federation.
Most of my friends from college became dental hygienists or went into retail, a lot went into sales. They all started getting married and having kids and buying homes and I was still living like a college student.
I was a student at Kent State University in May of 1970. I was also a musician in a regionally popular band called the James Gang. I was still going to class and stuff, but I was in and out because we were playing a lot.
Girls are more academically powerful. They make the grades, they run the student activities, they are the valedictorians.
I realized what interested me as a student of film was one thing and the movies that I liked were another.
To answer the question, though: I didn’t always want to direct. I just liked the idea of it. If a friend was making a short and needed someone who knew screen direction, I would jump in. It would be horrible, but it led to a short, then another, and another. It was like student films.
I was a solid C student because I was doing so many plays. I was a drama nerd, but I was also kind of a Zelig-like character; I would shift between different groups of people. But the people I spent most of my time with were either chorus or swing choir or the drama nerds.
I had always dreamed of living in Chapel Hill. When I was a college student at Hollins University in Virginia, I came down to Chapel Hill for summer school and just loved it.
I cannot wait to come back to Glasgow. I know the place like the back of my hand. In fact, one of the jobs I had as a student was in Cineworld. And I was always at gigs in King Tut’s, Nice ‘n’ Sleazy’s and the Barras. I played Ultimate Frisbee down on Glasgow Green and pulled pints in O’Neill’s on Queen Street.
I had no student friends to talk to about literature. My tutor was a really nice man, very charming – but he had no literary judgment.
Going to school on a campus where the faculty overwhelmingly disagrees with you, and where the student body overwhelmingly disagrees with you, is challenging. If you go in without a firm foundation, it can undermine what you believe.
I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that… I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans, and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living.
I always had a great history of comics. I’ve been buying them since I was six years old. I was a student of the craft.
I used to be a regular college student and now I go all over the country and stay at really nice hotels.
I think there should be a good balance between being a good student and being able to enjoy your high school life.
In the spring of 1929, I returned to the United States. I was homesick for this country. I had learned in my student days a great deal about the new physics. I wanted to pursue this myself, to explain it, and to foster its cultivation.
I was a good student. For a while, my parents did make me cope with school and films simultaneously. But after a point, this wasn’t practical. I had to choose between studies and films. I chose films.
As a graduate student at Harvard, I had to explain quite a few times that I was allowed to attend a university as a woman in Iran.
Pride adversely affects all our relationships – our relationship with God and His servants, between husband and wife, parent and child, employer and employee, teacher and student, and all mankind.
I went to New York in 1974, to either try to get a record deal, get into the New York Art Student League, or be a dancer. So that was my plan. Some plan. And I had no money.
When I was 14 years old, I went on location to film ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ for five months, and my high school was not happy. My job meant an increased workload for teachers, and they were not equipped to handle a ‘non-traditional’ student. So, during filming, they kicked me out.
Certainly, grades only matter so much when you’re in Hollywood. But I became an utterly motivated, devoted, committed student. I was a good student because I was convinced that it would somehow help me in my quest to become a filmmaker.
But for me, it is when a student has died. I find the death of a young person the most difficult and painful of times. To explain it to other young people, to see a bright future snuffed out, is just awful. I am haunted by those deaths.
I have so much respect for the genre of country music and for all the greats that have been a part of it. I’m a country singer, I’m a country fan, and I’m a student of country music.
I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do in school, but I definitely didn’t have adequate time to reach my full potential as a student.
My parents were very active in the Civil Rights Movement. My father was a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) worker; my mother was a secretary with the Panthers.
I became interested in photography during my first visit to the United States. I was a student at a university in Holland. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the American West. That was when I learned about the tradition of nature in American photography.
I think any student of military strategy would tell you that in order to attack a position, you should have a ratio of approximately 3 to 1 in favor of the attacker.
I would assert that highly effective leaders are made more than they’re born. Every leader I know who’s been highly effective has worked hard at it, and they’ve been students of it. The more you’re a student of leadership, the more you figure out what works for you and the more effective you’re going to be.
Leadership does take work. And it should. If you aspire to be a leader, you ought to treat leadership as a craft, you ought to become a student of it, and you ought to work at it. And if you’re not willing to work at it, well, you get what you give.
I had a certificate that said, ‘Doctor of Mixology, Harvard University,’ that I actually got from Harvard University. A friend of mine was a research assistant over there and it was one of those student or university perks and she brought me in on that. So I am a doctorate from Harvard and it only took me one afternoon.
I went to the Wharton School of Finance, the toughest place to get into. I was a great student.
I chose my classes based on which professors did not take attendance, and then I traded Padres tickets for notes from class. I wasn’t the student of the month.
America is the student who defies the odds to become the first in a family to go to college – the citizen who defies the cynics and goes out there and votes – the young person who comes out of the shadows to demand the right to dream. That’s what America is about.
I was a bit of a delinquent growing up, a very poor student – I nearly failed several grades before dropping out of high school and getting a G.E.D. But I still read a lot. Thrillers and war novels, mostly, along with the occasional literary novel from my parents’ bookshelf.
I have a weak spot for late ’60s-early ’70s yippie paperbacks and protest manifestos. I find them at flea markets or online. One of my favorites is ‘Right On,’ a compendium of student protests made into this 95-cent paperback with the most amazing graphics.
I was a good student, I was good at soccer, I was vice president of the student council, I was a pretty girl.
If you imagine someone with 100 percent determination and 100 percent intelligence, you can discard a lot of intelligence before they stop succeeding. But if you start discarding determination, you very quickly get an ineffectual and perpetual grad student.
American secretaries of state have typically been more buttoned up than bon vivant, but John Quincy Adams’s diplomatic successes – bigger than anything presidential or legislative that he achieved – still surprise a student of his personality.
You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.
When I was an impoverished graduate student, I would sometimes spend $20 or $30 on a T-shirt or accessory I didn’t need or even particularly want. What I craved was the purchase, not the thing itself. Of course, a sense of not being deprived may fill an emotional void without ruinous consequences.
All my books are made up of other books. They’re all deeply structured on other fiction, because I was a student in fiction and I didn’t have much actual living to draw on. I suspect a lot of other people’s novels are like that, too, though they might be slower to talk about it.
I was lucky because on the morning after the burning of the Reichstag I left my home very early to catch a train to Berlin for the conference of our student organization and that is the only reason why I escaped arrest.
I was a disinterested student.
Why should every single character be an honor student who goes around helping others and never doing anything wrong? Is that like the rule or something?
A studio gangster dupes people into believing he’s a tough guy, but in reality he’s the former student body president and member of the National Honor Society. Once Vanilla Ice was fingered as a studio gangster, his career was over. Thank God.
The message from the Technion when I was a student was: ‘You will be so good that when you graduate, everyone will want to hire you.’
Learn how to prioritize all your debt. And did you know student loan debt is the most dangerous debt any of us can have?
People have been predicting the death of philosophy since the 17th century. When I was a student, people were saying, ‘We’re in the last days of philosophy.’ Then we were told in the ’60s it would be replaced by sociology, then by literary criticism.
It is hard to convince a high-school student that he will encounter a lot of problems more difficult than those of algebra and geometry.
I was a very conscientious student.
If a student takes the whole series of my folklore courses including the graduate seminars, he or she should learn something about fieldwork, something about bibliography, something about how to carry out library research, and something about how to publish that research.
As any competent student of literary composition knows, the more natural and casual a voice sounds in print, the more likely it is to have been edited time and again.
As a college student, what really interested me was the human brain and human intelligence.
The day is past when schools could afford to give sufficient time and attention to the teaching of the ancient languages to enable the student to get that enjoyment out of classical literature that made the lives of our grandfathers so rich.
The first two pictures I did, I played a young student in prep school. When I did Lifeguard, everyone was saying, You’re so Southern California. It was a surprise to me.
Only Socrates knew, after a lifetime of unceasing labor, that he was ignorant. Now every high-school student knows that. How did it become so easy?
Oh, Diane Nash deserves her own film. Diane Nash is a freedom fighter who is still alive and kicking. She was one of the leaders of the desegregation of Nashville, basically. She was a student at Fisk University who was one of the founding members of SNCC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.
I like the relationship between the master and the student. Each piece has new problems, and each is different. They’re all an indentured servitude. There’s that subjugation that you have to put yourself under. It’s a give and take. There is work involved, and during that time, the greatest things are revealed.
I was not an outstanding student. I did a reasonable amount of work. I got generally good – pretty good grades, but I was not that passionate about getting straight A’s.
I was an ordinary student at school and, at the same time, an actor. But I was not the popular kid, which helped me to play Peter Parker better.
In graduate school, I was a student of E.L. Doctorow, and he had us read ‘Moby-Dick’ in a week.
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 feel like a foster kid that’s been in the system for a long time, and then at 16, somebody adopted them and said, ‘You can go to college, and you ain’t got to pay no student loans.’ I feel happy. I feel accepted after all these years of blood, sweat, and tears.
South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures – all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa.
When I was in high school, I was a bad kid and a good student.
The day I think I’ve achieved everything will be the day I fail. There is no end to learning, and I want to continue being a student.
Part of Obamacare eliminated the private sector financial market that engages in giving college student loans. I mean, now the federal government has taken over college student loans, so I sit back and strategically look at this and say this just cannot be happening.
I don’t have an MBA, and I didn’t go to Yale. I’m not an academic person and wasn’t a good student. Instead, I’ve been taught by some of the most inspiring people in the world.
Some people just seem like they are up to no good. Like, in high school, I was a good student and got straight As. It was very strict, and you couldn’t do well there unless you studied very hard, but every time there was any trouble, I was the first person they would be talking to.
I was probably a B student in high school, but it wasn’t until I got to college that I said, ‘Oh! This is what it’s all about.’ And then I became an A student. I studied journalism in college and that’s what really kicked it into high gear for me.
In 2007, a very inspired New York University Ph.D. student counted all the models on the runway, every single one that was hired, and of the 677 models that were hired, only 27, or less than four per cent, were non-white.
I was a D student in high school and on the dean’s list in college.
Teaching is so rewarding because when you see the look on student’s faces when they get it, when you’re able to excite them about what you’re excited about; it’s so rewarding, and it’s so much fun.
A Yale University management professor in response to student Fred Smith’s paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service: The concept is interesting and well-formed, but in order to earn better than a ‘C’, the idea must be feasible.
I love that UNLV is a big-little school, that you can still have access and support as a student.
I was a very good student. But I didn’t have the latitude to study more. I was never allowed to do anything cross-disciplinary. Why can’t an engineering student learn physics?
If I had been a good student and an achiever, I might have been excited by a more systematic approach to writing than what I do.
I’ve only been living in England for the last 10 years, if you don’t count my student years.
One student was mixing my yoga up with other kinds, and I said, ‘No, you cannot do that.’ You cannot put calamari in the sushi and call it sushi.
Engineering undergraduates should not be charged fees. They should receive grants, not student loans, and the government will get the money back long-term from increased exports.
I was a dedicated, boring student. The last thing I wanted was to be a comedienne.
I was a student at Peking University for close to a decade, while a so-called ‘knowledge explosion’ was rapidly expanding. I was searching for not just knowledge, but also to mold a temperament, to cultivate a scholarly outlook.
I have a lot of influences. I’m American-schooled. I’m classically trained. I’m a pretty universal student, if you will. I have a lot of degrees, which really don’t pay the rent. I have two doctorate degrees, I have a bachelor’s degree, but I’m still a cook.
I was an A student and I liked creative writing.
I was a terrible athlete and a pretty bad student. I couldn’t focus. My imagination was always racing.
I was in love with a lot of people, because I was a student of the game of comedy – Carol Burnett, Jack Benny, Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles, Red Foxx, Moms Mabley – who gets no credit, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, George Kirby. I loved them all, and I used to just take a page out of all of them.
The most superficial student of Roman history must be struck by the extraordinary degree in which the fortunes of the republic were affected by the presence of foreigners, under different names, on her soil.
I think I was a good student, because I jumped over a school. My main interest was basically history and literature. Sports were basically basketball and swimming at a pool. I was so happy.
Coaching is the great passion of my life, and the job to me has always been an opportunity to work with our student athletes and help them discover what they want.
I was taken out of school by my dad when I was 11 and lived in Mexico City, then later in Paris. I went with him to excavate in Bolivia and Peru. I never finished high school. I was a straight F student anyway. My father admitted to me later that he’d thought I would come to no good.
I grew up in New York City. In elementary school, I was a charter member of the Scribble Scrabble Club, and in high school, my poems were published in an anthology of student poetry.
The ‘Ms. Marvel’ mantle has passed to ‘Kamala Khan,’ a high school student from Jersey City who struggles to reconcile being an American teenager with the conservative customs of her Pakistani Muslim family.
I was a fantastic student until ten, and then my mind began to wander.
Where is instruction in relationships, in the management of career, in the raising of children, in the pursuit of friendship, in the wise approach to anxiety and death? All this sort of stuff I craved to learn about when I was a student and down to this day.
Who was Amanda Knox? Was she a fresh-faced honor student from Seattle who met anyone’s definition of an all-American girl – attractive, athletic, smart, hard-working, adventuresome, in love with languages and travel? Or was her pretty face a mask, a duplicitous cover for a depraved soul?
Suppose you want to be a great archeologist, and you join a successful archeologist as a student assistant, and he tells you where to dig. You dig up a marvelous discovery. Now I ask you, who should get the credit: the director or the digger?
I was a typical French student of the 1990s – I imagined that, after a short excursion, I would work the rest of my life at home.
When the student has her voice under complete control, it is safe to take up the lyric repertoire of Mendelssohn, Old English Songs, etc. How simple and charming they are!
I require every Taipei student to swim; if they can’t pass the test they won’t graduate. Why do I do that? Because I think that is very, very important integral part of their education.
I have strong feelings about cookbooks because I am a lover of them and student of them and devourer of them and collect them. I find them to be a great source of inspiration. When I was a cook and not making much money, I always used to spend most of what I had on cookbooks.
I’m a student. I want to do better, and I want directors who can find the actress in me and be my teachers. I’m interested in the whole process of editing, post-production and direction.
No student of history can fail to see the moral interest of the Middle Ages, any more than an artist can fail to see their aesthetic interest.
I’ve studied documentarians extensively to come up with my own in-house style. I’m a student of Michael Moore’s films, of Eisenstein, Riefenstahl. Leave the politics aside, you have to learn from those past masters on how they were trying to communicate their ideas.
I still picture myself as a student of the music. I’m always trying to learn new things. Music is just what makes me tick.
My husband was working as principal of an urban transformation high school – the kind of public charter school determined to do whatever it takes to give its mostly minority, low-income student body the education they need and deserve to be successful in life.
After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, primary education was made free. We are now thinking to make education in the public sector free up to graduation level. We are also thinking of providing a light meal at primary and secondary schools in order to increase the student retention level.
I consider myself a student of Hollywood.
I was pretty anti-academic, and I wasn’t much of a student. I had a really short attention span and did not get a lot out of high school academically. I think college was a little the same way.
If some student came up and wanted to know where to study painting, you’d want to suggest someplace, but there’s no place. I wouldn’t know where to send a student to study.
I wasn’t always interested in technology. I had been a student for a long time – I’d earned a bachelor’s degree, a law degree, and an MBA – and decided that I wanted to work in a large corporation, focusing on finance and law, in either New York or Chicago.
No, I’m not a student of Snake Eyes, but we trained in the same dojo.
Technology has enormous potential to address educational needs more efficiently, help teachers improve their performance, and enrich and individualize student learning.
I’m not just a dumb basketball player who got lucky and graduated from college. My ratio for professor to student was nine-to-one so it wasn’t like I wasn’t going to class. I was going to class every day.
When I was a college student and I got interested in linguistics the concern among students was, this is a lot of fun, but after we have done a structural analysis of every language in the world what’s left? It was assumed there were basically no puzzles.
I was a good student, but I didn’t like school.
When West End Girls came out on import, I was a student at Liverpool University. I’d go to a club in Liverpool and it would come on, and I’d be really embarrassed.
I wasn’t a great student. Just give me a school with no grades, and I’ll be happy.
My son is trying to be a sports writer, and my daughter is a college student. She wants to be a comedy writer, and she’s at film school. I discouraged both of them early on from getting involved in Starbucks. I didn’t think it would be fair; plus, they didn’t have any interest anyway.
I am a student of the game.
I do not care to put out any ideas for pictures. They are too valuable and can be appropriated by any art student, defrauding me out of a possible picture.
You have no choice as a professional chef: you have to repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat until it becomes part of yourself. I certainly don’t cook the same way I did 40 years ago, but the technique remains. And that’s what the student needs to learn: the technique.
I love the game of basketball. I love being able to work every day. I love being able to watch film, be a student of the game. It may not show emotionally, but I just love that I’m able to do this.
I was a good student. I started college at 16 years old and did okay.
I actually had a job while I was acting and was a nursing student, which I had to drop due to my 9-5 job at the time. I managed an instrument room at a hospital in the Bronx.
I was just an ordinary student. I’d always gotten along with authorities quite well.
I’ve never been a materialist; I’ve never been somebody who believes in only what we can see and measure. I continue to be a student of religious philosophy, and I continue to take those ideas very seriously.
Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant.
Harvard has played an important role in my life. I was a student, Class of 1936, and I’ve been on the board of overseers. My experiences there shaped who I am.
