AND TEACHERS' HAND-BOOK.

1889.

THE INFLUENCE OF EDUCATION: • I consider a human soul without education like marble in the quarry, which

shows none of its inherent beauties until the skill of the polisher fetches out the colours, makes the surface shine, and discovers every ornamental cloud, spot, and vein that runs through the body of it. Education, after the same manner, when it works upon a noble mind, draws out to view every latent virtue and perfection, which, without such helps, are never able to make their appearance.'—Joseph Addison.
