"The general Mistake ..." Quote of Richard Steele

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
The general Mistake among us in the Educating of our Children, is, That in our Daughters we take Care of their Persons and neglect their Minds; in our Sons, we are so intent upon adorning their Minds, that we wholly neglect their Bodies.
Richard Steele
