Excerpt from Self-Cultivation in English and the Glory of the Imperfect

The second of these papers has the wider scope. Originally prepared for the Woman's College Of Western Reserve University, it tries to aid the student in fashioning his ideals and describes what the daily attitude Of his mind should be. The first, an address at a Michigan University Commencement, is but an application to a particular field Of the ideals thus determined. The first is more practical, probably therefore more easy to understand; the second more theoretic and fundamental. In any discussion Of the pair this latter would logically precede. Yet it requires, after all, only a few words Of explanation.

Whoever enters on a course Of discipline with a view to development should assure himself Of two things: his actual smallness and his possible large ness. Conviction Of either alone spells ruin. The graduate Of a college, for example, on entering busi ness must Often remind himself that he is no longer a Senior. He is a Freshman once more a little.
