"Children have Masters to teach them to Dance and Sing, &c. but few or none to form their Minds, and teach them good Sense; that is not thought of; which is therefore the only Reason why most Men are more govern'd by Caprice and Fancy, than by the Guide of their Reason, which is not sufficiently cultivated."
— Manley, Delarivier (c. 1670-1724)
