Medieval Quote

Some [students] studied merely to acquire knowledge, which is curiosity; others to acquire fame, which is vanity; others still for the sake of gain, which is cupidity and the vice of simony. Very few studied for their own edification, or that of others.

- Jacques de Vitry, description of student life at Paris
