SELECTION: Quotations by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.

“The true business of a university is to train liberty into responsibility, to teach a young man to think for himself, yet so he remembers he is a citizen, and of no mean city.”

“There is such a thing in the world as a love of learning.”

“Be it admitted that the more deeply a man explores his subject, the further he will be led to consider the views of those who have studied and thought upon it before him; the more conscious he will feel of his own fallibility in the fog of ignorance encompassing all. He will read on and on, and a growing modesty will deter him from seeking such positive assertions as are made by hastier, less-informed men.”

“[We are] guarding a high tradition while stewarding a beautiful estate.”

“In due course, let us hope, you will all advance through the degree of Bachelor to a Mastership of Arts. You may even—if you value it—proceed to a Doctorate in some branch of learning. But a Mastership of Arts implies, or should imply, that you have taken such advantage of three or four years here that you have so far acquired—by help of your dons, and by rubbing your intelligence in a large and jostling concourse of youth—a chastened and corrected liberty of your own thought, with a responsibility for it which sends you out with a grip of affairs and a persuasive mastery over your own and other men’s minds whether your vocation be the Court, the Bar, or Teaching, or the modest service of a Country Parish; in all—to quote the words of the Catechism so often misunderstood—’to learn and labour truly to get mine own living, and to do my duty in that state of life into which it shall please God to call me.’ Service, in other words; service in whatever capacity, with a mastery learnt here, but a mastery of service.”
