Assimilation of the best that has been thought and accom- plished affects not merely the brain, but the character-the whole spirit of a man. Cul- ture implies a soil plowed and fertilised, where whatever seed falls has the better chance for growth. Information even in vast quantities, so long as it remains mere information, used for purposes of passing examinations, need not affect the manners nor the morals of a man both may re- main hopelessly lax in an encyclopedian mine of facts. But culture affects prim- arily the manners and the morals. A cul- tured gentleman has external methods of getting on with his kind he has the true sense of relationship, the feeling that all he can learn to feel or to be is not for himself, but for service he knows himself in a net- work of human inter-relations.
