Excerpt from Liberal Education: An Address Delivered Before the Phi Beta Kappa Society of Harvard College, July 22, 1858

The motto of our society, and the avowed objects for which it was instituted, must be my apology for the seeming abruptness of entering, without any prefatory remarks, upon the subject to which I intend to invite your attention. The "promotion of a sound literature" depends, in a large measure, upon the promotion of a sound education. The natural tastes of a young student are so much modified and so unequally cultivated in the course of his preliminary and collegiate education, that his choice of a special pursuit is frequently determined more by his culture than by natural attraction; and his proficiency in the chosen pursuit is also largely affected by the character of his preliminary study.
