Who Wrote?

1."Bright College Days, oh, carefree days that fly, To thee we sing with our glasses raised on high.

Let's drink a toast as each of us recalls

Ivy-covered professors in ivy-covered halls...

Soon we'll be out amid the cold world's strife.

Soon we'll be sliding down the razor blade of life.

But as we go our sordid separate ways,

We shall ne'er forget thee,

Thou golden college days."

2."He must have known me had he seen me as he was wont to see me, for he was in the habit of flogging me constantly. Perhaps he did not recognize me by my face."

3."Instead of giving money to found colleges to promote learning, why don't they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as good as the Prohibition did, why, in five years we would have the smartest race of people on earth."
