10: Culture must never exclude art, books, or the individual
11: Learn Latin, fishing, riding, and gymnastics: each will serve.

13: Travel is overrated: people that run to other countries because they do not fill a place at home 'cannot abroad.'
14: "Let him go where he will, he can only find so much beauty or worth as he carries."
15: But..."of the six or seven teachers whom each man wants ...it often happens that one or two of them live on the other side of the world.
16: The best lesson is quiet manners, and the "mark of the man of the world is absence of pretension."
17: One must also remember the high possibilities of a million men.
18: "To the man at work, the frost is but a color: the rain, the wind, he forgot them when he came in. "
19: "Let us learn to live coarsely, dress plainly, and lie hard."
20: Periods of solitude that the saint and the poet seek cultivate character development and creativity.
21: With attentive objectivity, one can perceive the beauty in all people
22: It can also perceive ugliness in friends
23: "Try the rough water as well as the smooth.. Rough water can teach lessons worth knowing."
