Quote by Mary Astell
Ignorance and a narrow education lay the foundation of vice, and imitation and custom rear it up.
This quote suggests that ignorance and a limited education are the root causes of vice (immoral behavior). It argues that lack of knowledge leads individuals astray, while imitation of others and adherence to established customs perpetuate and reinforce this negative behavior. In essence, the quote highlights the importance of a broad and comprehensive education that fosters critical thinking and independent judgment in order to combat ignorance and prevent the continued spread of vice in society.
All Nine often used to come to me, I mean the Muses: But I ignored them: my girl was in my arms. Now I've left my sweetheart: and they've left me, And I roll my eyes, seeking a knife or rope. But Heaven is full of gods: You came to aid me: Greetings, Boredom, mother of the Muse.
Nurturing, Providing, and loving you passionately. May that be, my number of responsibilities. As one to the end, forever more. That's how long I desire, our love to last for. Providing for you many and joyful memories. In hours of darkness, as well as brightness. I plan to supply for you. For your love for me and happiness, is all that matters to me.
