Culture by Self-Help

Excerpt from Culture by Self-Help: In a Literary, an Academic or an Oratorical Career The former title of this book was "Intellectual Pursuits; or Culture by Self-help." It is considered that the second or sub-title sufficiently covers the subject matter treated; whereas the other goes too far, or covers more ground than the book contains. Although these chapters have appeared in current periodicals, I do not think they are any the worse for that. The printed page enables the author to see his mistakes, and I have endeavored to correct mine in the first impression. Not that I think my work is now faultless; but I am sure that it is if it had never appeared in print before. The work is addressed mainly to young persons ambitious of excellence in a literary, an academic, or an oratorical career; it has no pretensions to instructing those that are experienced in this field. But when I say young persons, I mean those who are young intellectually; and I consider all my readers who are still striving for improvement, still growing in knowledge and ability, as belonging to that class. Only those who have ceased to learn are old. I think with Goethe, that he Who has not won a name, and seeks not noble works, Belongs but to the elements: 'Tis faith and service that secure individual life.
