    He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one,
    Exceeding wise, fair-spoken, and persuading;
    Lofty and sour to them that loved him not,
    But to those men that sought him, sweet as summer.

Rocking on a lazy billow

Thou wilt bless the task when reaping
Sweet labour's prize.

If you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and read more

If you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything.

And shining morning face, creeping like snail

Ah, pensive scholar, what is fame?
A fitful tongue of leaping flame;
A giddy whirlwind's fickle gust,
That lifts a pinch of mortal dust;
A few swift years, and who can show
Which dust was Bill, and which was Joe?
