BC: Culture corrects the theory of success.

FC: Emerson's The Conduct of Life by Jen Brunner

1: The influence of fine scenery, the presence of mountains, appeases our irrations and elevates our friendships.

2: A man should live in or near a large town, because, let his own genius be what it may, it will repel quite as much of agreeable and valuable talent as it draws.

3: Books, as containing the finest of human wit, must always enter into our notion of culture.

4: We must begin higher up, namely, in Education.

5: Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear. | Solitude takes off the pressure of present importunities that more catholic and humane relations may appear.

6: And, as a medical remedy, travel seems one of the best.

7: Beware of the man who says, "I am on the eve of a revelation."

8: No doubt, to a man of sense, travel offers advantages.

9: You cannot have one well-bred man, without a whole society of such. They keep each other up to any high point.

10: The longer we live, the more we must endure elementary existence of men and woman; and every brave heart must treat society as a child, and never allow it to dictate.

11: I think, sculpture and painting have an effect to teach us manners, and abolish hurry.

12: A boy is better unborn than untaught.

13: We shall one day learn to supersede politics by education.

14: Good criticism is very rare, and always precious.

15: A man is a prisoner of his power.

16: I think, there is a restlessness in our people, which argues want of character.

17: Our student must have a style and determination, and be master in his own speciality.

18: A man in pursuit of greatness feels no little wants.

19: The time will come when evil forms we have known can no more be organized.
