Excerpt from Virginibus Puerisque, and Other Papers

It is good to have been young in youth and, as years go on, to grow older. Many are already old before they are through their teens; but to travel deliberately through one's ages is to get the heart out of a liberal education. Times change, opinions vary to their opposite, and still this world appears a brave gymnasium, full of sea-bathing, and horse exercise, and bracing, manly virtues; and What can be more encouraging than to find the friend who was welcome at one age, still welcome at ah other? Our affections and beliefs are wiser than we; the best that is in us is better than we can understand; fq°1r11t:i's 'g'rourid'éd beyoiad experience, and guides us, bl1ndfold,1hut Sale, from one age on to another.
