Famous quotes containing the words the world, world and/or universities:

    I know some of my self-worth comes from tennis, and it’s hard to think of doing something else where you know you’ll never be the best. Tennis players are rare creatures: where else in the world can you know that you’re the best? The definitiveness of it is the beauty of it, but it’s not all there is to life and I’m ready to explore the alternatives.
    Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)

    The world is a beautiful book, but of little use to him who cannot read it.
    Carlo Goldoni (1707–1793)

    In universities and intellectual circles, academics can guarantee themselves popularity—or, which is just as satisfying, unpopularity—by being opinionated rather than by being learned.
    —A.N. (Andrew Norman)
