Top 5 Quotes by  Abbott-l-Lowell 

You will seek not a   near but a distant objective, and you will not be satisfied with what you may   have done.

You will not accept   credit that is due to another, or harbor jealousy of an explorer who is more   fortunate.

You will be   courteous to your elders who have explored to the point from which you may   advance; and helpful to your juniors who will progress farther by reason of   your labors.

All that you may   achieve or discover you will regard as a fragment of a larger pattern of the   truth which from the separate approaches every true scholar is striving to   descry.


Your aim will be   knowledge and wisdom, not the reflected glamour of fame.
