EXTRACTED TEXT FROM PAGE:
Studies serve for delight, for ornament and for ability. Their chief use, for delight is in privateness and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment and disposition of business;—for expert men can execute, and perhaps judge of particulars, one by one; but the general counsels and the plots and marshalling of affairs come best from those that are learned.—LOED BACON. The grand result of schooling is a mind with just vision to discern, with free force to do; the grand schoolmaster is Practice. * * * He that has done nothing has known nothing. Vain is it to sit scheming and plausibly discoursing; up and be doing! If thy knowledge be real, put it forth from thee; grapple with real Nature; try thy theories there and see how they hold out.—CAUL,YLE.
