PLUTARCH

and divine. In the nature of man there are two sovereign elements-understanding and reason. It is the place of the understanding to direct the reason and of the reason to serve the understanding. Fortune cannot overcome them, calumny cannot rob us of them, disease cannot corrupt them, old age cannot impair them. The understanding is the only thing that renews its youth as it grows old, and, while time carries off everything else, it brings old age one gift-that of knowledge. When, again, war comes like a torrent, tearing and sweeping everything away, it is of our mental culture alone that it cannot rob us. Stilpo, the Megarian philosopher, made what seems a memorable answer when Demetrius, after enslaving the city and razing it to the ground, asked him if he had lost anything. ` Oh no! ' said he, 'for virtue is not made spoil of war.' The reply of Socrates is evidently to the same tune and purpose. It was Gorgias, I believe, who asked him his opinion of the Great King, and whether he considered him happy. ` I have no knowledge', said Socrates, 'as to the state of his character and culture.' He assumed that happiness depended upon these, and not upon the gifts of fortune.
Not only should the education of our children be treated as of the very first importance, but I once more urge that we should insist upon its being of the sound and genuine kind. From pretentious nonsense our sons should be kept as far aloof as possible. To please the many is to displease the wise.

PHILOSOPHY should be put at the head of all mental culture. The services which have been invented for the care of the body are two-medicine and gymnastics-the one imparting health, the other good condition. But for the weaknesses and ailments of the soul philosophy is the only thing to be prescribed. It is from and with philosophy that we
