Benthamisms

Education

On this subject as on many others strange notions have where should
been entertained in the world:– that nothing in a mind
is better than anything: or that if something must be there
that something is better supplied by chance than by design
as if Fortune were wisdoms surest guide. But "Nothing" will
not keep its hold in every mind. Be it as it may with space
Nature endures no vacuum in minds. The mind is a field in
which if which so sure as man sows not

wheat so sure will the Devil be so sow to tares. Another
strange notion if another it may be termed which has been
entertained as if there were a repugnancy between morality
and letters, as if the health of the affections and moral
faculties depended in this rank of life more than any
other upon a morbid state of the intellectual. Letters it
has been said may be an instrument of fraud; so may
bread, if discharged from the mouth of a cannon be
an instrument of death.
