Who Said That?

The graduates of McGill University who finished their degrees after World War II ended are the great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents of those who are graduating from university and college over 65 years later.  The quotes beside each graduates’ name speaks volumes of how they interpreted the world around them.  Since most of the quotes fail to acknowledge the author of the quote, I thought it would be fun to see how many of these quotes are recognized by those who follow or visit my blog.  Today’s quote is this:

How good to live and learn.

Feel free to add the name of who you believe was — or may have been — the person who first spoke or first wrote those words, in the Comments Section below.

    I know that Robert Browning’s poem, “Rabbi Ben Ezra” (probably best known for the its first two lines, “grow old along with me, the best is yet to be”) has that phrase in the last line of the stanza in the first half of this very long poem:

    “Should not the heart beat once ‘How good to live and learn?’”

    This is one of a dozen or so that stuck with me from a literature class I took about four years ago.
