Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu

Whoever will cultivate their own mind will find full employment. Every virtue does not only require great care in the planting, but as much daily solicitude in cherishing as exotic fruits and flowers; the vices and passions (which I am afraid are the natural product of the soil) demand perpetual weeding. Add to this the search after knowledge... and the longest life is too short.

Whoever will cultivate their own mind will find full employm


This quote emphasizes the importance of personal growth and continuous self-improvement. It suggests that those who invest time and effort in developing their minds will always have meaningful tasks and responsibilities. Just as virtues need constant attention and nurturing, the detrimental aspects of human nature must be consistently confronted and eliminated. In addition, the pursuit of knowledge is highlighted as an additional lifelong endeavor. Ultimately, the quote suggests that a single lifetime may not be enough to fully explore the depths of personal development and intellectual growth.
