Chats with Girls on Self-Culture

Excerpt from Chats With Girls on Self-Culture One summer morning, long ago, I sat in a pleasant schoolroom and listened while a group of fine young girls in fresh, white dresses read their graduating compositions. One of them, whose eyes were clear and whose voice was earnest, had chosen as her subject the words of Jean Paul, - "I have made of myself all that could be made of the stuff." I have forgotten her composition; but I think it must have been forcible, since after all these years I remember her dignity of bearing, and the impression of her motto has never been lost. It seems to me a worthy introduction to the subject of Self-Culture. Self-Culture is the education which we give ourselves, or in other words, the culture of ourselves by ourselves. We have all kinds of material to work upon, and some of us have great help from others in our work, but we all have to do something.
