From the October 1882 Register, Volume 2, Number 2

"That an individual destitute of intellectual culture may possess a certain degree of happiness must be admitted by all. The peasant in his cottage is happy; the Indian in his native wild is happy; the islander in the far-off sea is happy: but the happiness of these individuals is of the lowest character and the most limited extent. Education opens new scenes of pleasure to its possessor . . . The sources of intellectual pleasure are always with us let life be what it may to us, let friends depart, still knowledge continues with us to cheer and gladden our hearts. Would you then, increase your happiness and add to the number and character of your pleasure? . . . Let no opportunity pass by which you can add to the treasures of your intellect and heart."
