A boor cannot be sin-fearing, an ignoramus cannot be pious, a bashful one cannot learn, a short-tempered person cannot teach, nor does anyone who does much business grow wise.
The more scholastically educated a man is generally, the more he is an emotional boor.d. h. lawrence
Here was a man who could not spell, and did not care to read — who had the habits and the cunning of a boor: whose aim in life was pettifogging: who never had a taste, or emotion, or enjoyment, but was sordid and soil; and yet he had rank, and honors, and power, somehow: and was dignitary of the land, and a pillar of the state.william makepeace thackeray
And to this day is every scholar poor; Gross gold from them runs headlong to the boor.Christopher Marlowe
