PLUTARCH

same errors himself, is to become his own accuser while ostensibly theirs. Indeed, if his life is bad, he is disqualified from reproving even a slave, much more his son. To obtain good behaviour from our children we should therefore strive to carry out every moral duty.
To compass the whole of the foregoing elements of success is perhaps visionary-a counsel of perfection. But to cultivate the majority of them, though itself requiring good fortune as well as much care, is at any rate a thing within the reach of a human being.

Independence in Education
THE mind is not a vessel which calls for filling. It is a pile, which simply requires kindling-wood to start the flame of eagerness for original thought and ardour for truth. Suppose some one goes to borrow from his neighbour's fire, and then, on finding a large bright blaze, persists in staying and basking on the spot. It is the same when a man comes to another to borrow reason, and does not realize that he must kindle a light of his own in the shape of thinking for himself, but sits enchanted with enjoyment of the lecture. He derives from the lesson a ruddy glow or outward brilliance, but he fails to drive out the mould and darkness from within by the warming power of philosophy.
If therefore any advice is needed for the hearing of lectures, it is to remember the rule just given-to practise independent thought along with learning. We shall thus attain, not to the ability of the ` well-informed ' man, but to a deep-seated philosophic power. Right listening will be for us the introduction to right living.
The following advice on married life is from a letter to a young husband and wife. Sensible yet idealistic, with a touch -but not more-of the Turk, it shows Greek marriage at its best.
